Supporters to clock up the miles in 2018/19

City fans will need to cover more than 7,300 miles if they want to watch each of the club’s Sky Bet Championship away games next season.

Following the conclusion of the play-offs over the Bank Holiday weekend, each of City’s 23 league opponents have now been confirmed.

With distances measured from Ashton Gate to the respective opposition grounds, City supporters attending every 2018/19 away league fixture will travel 7,382 miles – a marginal decrease of 14 miles on last term.

After Cardiff City secured promotion to the Premier League, City’s closest away day next season will be Reading’s Madejski Stadium, while the 269-mile trip to the North East to face Middlesbrough will be the furthest jaunt for supporters.
