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.

Trips to Birmingham City, Reading, Swansea City and West Brom are City’s only four journeys under the 100-mile mark.

DISTANCE TO OPPOSING GROUNDS

Aston Villa – 102
Birmingham City – 94
Blackburn Rovers – 198
Bolton Wanderers – 188
Brentford – 114
Derby County – 141
Hull City – 232
Ipswich Town – 209
Leeds United – 212
Millwall – 125
Middlesbrough – 269
Norwich City – 245
Nottingham Forest – 142
Preston North End – 197
Queens Park Rangers – 117
Reading – 80
Rotherham United – 181
Sheffield United – 177
Sheffield Wednesday – 186
Stoke City – 131
Swansea City – 81
West Bromwich Albion – 93
