City fans to rack up the miles again

Supporters will have further to travel to follow City’s Sky Bet Championship progress next season.

With distances measured from Ashton Gate to the respective opposition grounds, City fans attending every away fixture will travel a total of 7,396 miles in the 2017/18 campaign – an increase of 134 miles on last term.

Supporters have lost in excess of 1,200 miles from the departures of promoted trio Newcastle United, Brighton & Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town, plus relegated sides Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic and Rotherham United.

However, those entering the Championship include North East sides Sunderland and Middlesbrough, plus Hull City. Millwall’s New Den is the closest of the new sextet, but promotions for Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers only adds to the miles.

Trips to Cardiff City, Reading, Birmingham City and Wolves remain City’s only four journeys under the 100-mile mark.

The full list can be found below.

Aston Villa – 102
Barnsley – 194
Birmingham City – 90
Bolton Wanderers – 188
Brentford – 114
Burton Albion – 132
Cardiff City – 52
Derby County – 139
Fulham – 117
Hull City – 232
Ipswich Town – 209
Leeds United – 209
Millwall – 125
Middlesbrough – 269
Norwich City – 245
Nottingham Forest – 142
Preston North End – 192
Queens Park Rangers – 116
Reading – 81
Sheffield United – 177
Sheffield Wednesday – 183
Sunderland – 294
Wolverhampton Wanderers – 96
