Championship Away Day Travel Distances – which fans have to put the most miles in?

The Championship fixtures for the new 2019/20 season have been released and The Stats Zone have crunched the numbers to see which away fans have the furthest distance to travel across the whole season.

By using Google Maps the calculations have all been done and it shows that South Wales side Swansea City will have the furthest distance to travel next season, with each away trip averaging 193.7 miles. They will also have the longest single away trip, the 311 miles to the Riverside to play Middlesbrough.
