Despite their precarious league position, Orient have agreed a new sponsorship deal for next season with Samsung Electonics (UK).

They will become the new official club sponsor and the Samsung logo will appear on the front of the team’s home shirts and on the back of their away shirts.

The link-up with Orient will be Samsung’s third shirt sponsorship, joining the commercial packages at Chelsea and Swindon Town.

Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn said: “We are thrilled to welcome Samsung Electronics as our club sponsors for next season.
