edited September 2009 in Match Day Travel
Me and a mate last night in a local boozer in Kent were having a debate about who in the football league travells the furtherest and thought it was quiet an interesting topic. So i thought i would ask on here who has been the furtherest to watch my beloved CAFC. We came to the conclusion Plymouth or Exeter prob travel the most in the football league can anyone else come up with anything better.

    Looking purely at the composition of our division this season I would say Carlisle will probably do more miles than Exeter overall.

    Hartlepool, Huddersfield, Tranmere, Leeds are their nearest fixtures I think without studying the table. Yeovil, Bristol Rovers, Southampton and Wycombe are nearest Exeter.

    It must be Plymouth as they have their own tv ads lauding their loyalty, the inbred looking retards.

    Whoever it is, they will pale into insignificance compared to Tromso in Norway.

    We went to see Stavanger play Tromso a few years back while on holiday in Norway and there were about 40 away fans there.

    Check out the map - they're in the bl**dy Arctic Circle ffs.

    ""Tromsø has a reputation in Norway for getting a lot of snow in the winter, although this varies a lot from one year to the next. The all-time record was set 29 April 1997, when the meteorological station on top of Tromsøya recorded 240 centimetres (94.5 in) of snow. The lowest temperature ever recorded is −18.4 °C (−1 °F), and the January average is a mere −4 °C (24.8 °F)"


    240cm of snow in one day!!

    Tromso doesn't count, we are not allowed to include non league/sunday league games, so the Norwegian, Finnish, kazakh, moldovan, Scottish leagues are ineligible.

    Mid-70's I think it was ...... we lost 2-0 up there.

    They had a lethal striker called Henry Hall.

    For last season, the facts are on www.tonykempster.co.uk - Tony sadly died during the summer, so this magnificent website is frozen.

    In the Premiership, it was Pompey with 4508 miles. In the championship, Plymouth with 5772, in League 1 Carlisle with 5349, in League 2 Exeter 5336. However, Barrow of the Conference scored 5733. The lowest is surprising - Manchester United with 2193.

    I go to all the games away. In 2006 when we played Hibernian Away, i went straight from Scotland to Spain to watch the Valencia friendly match. Its a shame we lost both. Incedentally, the Valencia match kicked off on one day and finished on the next. The Kick off was delayed to nearly 11pm local time.
