LESS TRAVELLING LINED UP FOR CITY

27 May 2014

City fans following Phil Parkinson's squad on the road next season will have exactly 500 miles less to travel during the 2014/2015 campaign.

Following Fleetwood Town's elevation into Sky Bet League 1 on Monday for the new season after their Play-Off Final win over Burton Albion, Parkinson's side now know their full rota of opponents for the coming year.

Fresh from their relegation from the Championship, Somerset-based side Yeovil Town are set to be City's longest journey of the season for a league fixture.

Three of the other seven new teams in League 1 next season - Doncaster Rovers, Barnsley and Rochdale - will all give the Bantams round trips totalling less than a hundred miles though.

Barnsley and Rochdale, in fact, along with Oldham Athletic, will be City's nearest away league matches for the season.

City supporters following the Bantams last (2013/2014) season would have had to have travelled approximately 6,202* miles to watch every one of the club's away league fixtures.

Crunching the numbers this time around, however, Bradford followers are scheduled for 5,702* motorway miles next season as they make their way up and down the country supporting the lads.

This is the second year on the trot City's number of travelling miles have been reduced for the season after the Bantams racked up 7,352* miles on the road during the 2012/2013 league campaign.

* Mileage taken directly from the Coral Windows Stadium to the visiting away ground. Mileage also includes return journey.
