21 June 2017

Rochdale fans who travel to all 23 away league games this season will clock up almost six-thousand miles during the 2017-18 campaign.

To be precise, Dale, departing from the Crown Oil Arena, will travel 5920.6 miles during the season, which is 155.6 more miles than the 5765 miles covered in 2016-17.

Rochdale’s visit to Plymouth Argyle’s Home Park is the furthest round trip, coming in at 597.6 miles. This is followed closely by the trip to fellow League One newcomers Portsmouth (520.4), who Dale face on the opening day of the season.

Closer to home, the shortest journey is once again the trip to Oldham Athletic’s SportsDirect.com Park, which comes in at 11.8 miles on the round trip. Bury is just slightly further, with 12.4 miles to travel in total.
