Orient season ticket holders can watch their game at Exeter tomorrow for free, thanks to some benefactor. Not sure what that means for our income

We sold 1,312 Passes for the game at Barrow on 23rd March. Not bad considering our form and league position.

So do I.

Looking forward to next season back in the Conference where we will be 'Big Fish' again. It's the only thing I'm looking forward to about being down there though. The pitches and refs are worse than in Div 4.

From financial meltdown to a promotion charge - how Bolton were reborn

Good article this. Interesting comment regarding iFollow. Nice to see articles of the club in a positive light after recent years.

The fruits are significant. For the first time in an age, Bolton can no longer be described as a crisis club. Management, directors and players are united. After being routinely sneered at by the previous owner, the Supporters Trust is in fruitful communication with the new chair Sharon Brittan. And the fans are flocking back, if not yet in person then to watch games online: Bolton have the fifth highest number of subscribers to the iFollow service in the entire EFL.

March away fixtures:

Newport County - 3,212
Carlisle United - 2,923
Scunthorpe United - 2,965
Colchester United - 2,120

Following the losses at Newport, Carlisle and Scunny, Saturday’s take-up at Colchester took an almighty dive compared to recent weeks.

I’m sure the club will announce the full breakdown for March shortly - bet you can’t wait. :D

The number's seem to be going higher every month. Have Bradford issued figures all season. ? If so what is the averages of the figures you have for home and away ? Also what is the season highest paid single stream home and away,. Still no figures from Bolton .

Yeah, they’ve been incredibly transparent with it all, tbh. We had a fans forum recently and our CEO mentioned that we were around 4th in the table for overall sales up until around November - but we’re currently second behind Bolton.

Had the season started in November, we would’ve been top - just purely down to actually competing in games.

Highest home sales so far is around the 1,300 mark - low in comparison to most clubs, but we do have 9,500 season ticket holders. It’s fair to say that our game against Bolton the other week will have had an online audience of 20,000+.

Highest away sales stands at around 3,300ish - but we have been selling around 3,000 on average for a fair few weeks, now.

We play Stevenage at the weekend,and I imagine we’ll smash the 3,300 figure.

I probably could work out the season average, but I honestly can’t be arsed. Given the transparency, I presume the club will provide a full breakdown at season end. If not, I’ll do the deeds - no problem.

That is just pure speculation that you would have been top since November as Bolton have not released their figures so you can't know that. Your home sales would definitely be lower than Bolton's as the one figure I got from this site was Grimsby which was higher than your highest (1210 against us) and that was when we were in the bottom eight.

I would also have expected Bolton's away figures to have gone up considerably since the improvement in form and the continuation of lockdown.

To say you had 20.000 watching the Bolton match is also just an opinion what cannot be prove or disproven but not all your 9039 season ticket holders (not 9500) would have a separate stream as some would be families and live in the same houses.

Well, it’s not pure speculation, is it? All viewing figures are relayed back to the FA, who make the figures accessible to every club. Just because your figures are not in the public domain, like ours are, doesn’t make Ryan Spark’s projection “pure speculation”.

He’s basing his projection on iFollow tickets sold from our upturn of form; suggesting that we’ve sold more tickets than you during this period - hence his projection.

I’m honestly struggling to understand your point regarding home sales.

We typically sell 14,000-20,000 season tickets, depending on form and league we’re in. If sales are down by 4,500 this season, it’s fair to say that 4,500 fans are most probably sharing an IFollow stream. This isn’t unusual, this happens at every club up and down the country. So, using this principal, you could estimate that there could be circa 14,000 fans watching our home games. Given the additional 1,300 sold for the game against Bolton, alongside your streams sold - who also have people sharing the same stream, why is a 20,000+ iFollow audience being questioned? It’s very much a distinct possibility.

Can’t believe I’ve just spent 3 minutes writing that.

Sunderland would’ve sold more.
