Over 2,000 Ajax fans are planning to attend Leyton Orient's Leasing.com Trophy tie against Brighton & Hove Albion under-21s next month.

The Dutch side, who reached the Champions League semi-finals last season before being knocked out by Tottenham Hotspur, are playing Chelsea in a Champions League group game the same evening (Tuesday, November 5), but UEFA have banned away fans from attending the game due to previous crowd troubles.

Fans who had already paid for travel and accommodation are now planning on attending the Breyer Group Stadium instead as Orient look to advance to the knockout stages of the Leasing.com Trophy.

The O's have played two of their three group games so far, beating Southend United at home before losing away at AFC Wimbledon.
