Leyton Orient Football Club /ˌltən ˈɔəriənt/ is a professional football club in Leyton, London, England. They play in League Two, the fourth tier of the English football league system, and are known to their fans as the O's. The club's home colours are all red.

Leyton Orient have spent one season in the top flight of English football, in 1962–63. In 1978, they reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup for the only time in their history, under the management of Jimmy Bloomfield. Between October 1993 and September 1995, Orient did not win a single away game in the league, leaving them bottom of Division Two in 1994–95.

Leyton Orient's home ground Brisbane Road is officially known as the Matchroom Stadium after former club chairman Barry Hearn's sports promotion company. Hearn became chairman in 1995 after the club was put on sale for £5 by then-chairman Tony Wood, a period covered by the television documentary Orient: Club for a Fiver, made by production company Open Media for Channel 4. In 2014, Hearn sold the club to Italian businessman Francesco Becchetti.

Leyton Orient finished seventh, one place away from the playoff positions, in both the 2010–11 and 2012–13 seasons. In the 2013–14 season, Orient lost the League One Play-Off final at Wembley to Rotherham United and in 2015 were relegated to League Two.
