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.
