LESS TIME ON THE ROAD FOR CITY NEXT SEASON

26 May 2015

City fans following Phil Parkinson's squad on the road next season will have a massive 886 fewer miles to travel during the 2015/2016 campaign.

Following Swindon Town's defeat at the hands of Preston North End in Sunday's Sky Bet League 1 Play Off Final at Wembley Stadium, Parkinson's side now know their full rota of opponents for the coming year.

The Bantams' visit to Kent to play Gillingham is scheduled to be City's longest journey of the season for a league fixture during the forthcoming campaign.

Barnsley, Rochdale and Oldham Athletic will remain City's nearest away league matches for the season.

City supporters following the Bantams last (2014/2015) season would have had to have travelled approximately 5,702* miles to watch every one of the club's away league fixtures.

Crunching the numbers this time around, however, Bradford followers are scheduled for 4,816* motorway miles next season as they make their way up and down the country supporting the lads.

This is the third year on the trot City's number of travelling miles have been reduced for the season after the Bantams racked up 6,202* miles on the road during the 2013/2014 league campaign.

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