The financial hit to the club on Tuesday would have been about 15k. The Orient game last year attracted 2494 home supporters compared to 1260 this season, an alarming drop of almost 50%. The away support went up not surprisingly from 566 to 729 an increase of just 30%.
The corresponding 19th home fixture attendance last season against Boreham Wood attracted 2488 the 20th home game against Solihull Moors 2853.
By my estimations financially we will be just short of 200k loss on this season home budgeted figure of 2450.
To put the matter into context when we were challenging for promotion last year against Macclesfield, we had an attendance of 4358 of which 4143 were home supporters, the difference in revenue between the Macclesfield game and Orient on Tuesday is about 35k and that fellow supporters is how financially things can change so remarkably.

Just shows how many 'glory hunters' there are out there. True fans support the club through thick and thin.

I'm a regular supporter but a little bit of glory wouldn't go amiss. :)

We only get one life. If you are repeatedly paying £20 to watch low quality entertainment on a Saturday afternoon, and if you aren't enjoying it, the sensible thing is to stop. A lot of people have more enjoyable ways to spend their time.
