Rochdale fans who travel to all 23 away league games this season will clock up over five-and-half-thousand miles during the 2016-17 campaign, which is over a thousand more than last season.


Dale will travel 5765 miles during the season, which is 1,194.2 more miles than the 4570.8 miles covered in 2015-16.

Rochdale's visit to Gillingham’s Priestfield Stadium remains the furthest round trip at just over 500 miles, followed closely by Southend United (499.6) and league new comers AFC Wimbledon (474.6).
