MORE MILES ON THE ROAD FOR McCALL'S MEN NEXT SEASON

29 May 2017

City supporters will have to travel a total of 6,192* miles supporting Stuart McCall's Bantams next season.

Following Blackpool's victory over Exeter City in the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Final on Sunday, City now know their full schedule of opponents for the 2017/2018 campaign.

Newly-promoted duo, Plymouth Argyle and Portsmouth, will be the Bantams' two longests trips of the season in League One.

The other five of City's new opponents in the forthcoming campaign - Blackpool, Rotherham United, Wigan Athletic, Doncaster Rovers and Blackburn Rovers - are under 200 hundred miles away for the round trip, however.

Visits to Oldham Athletic and Rochdale will remain City's nearest away league matches for the new season.

City supporters following the Bantams last season (2016/2017 campaign) will have travelled approximately 6,002 * miles to watch McCall's men in action away from home during the regular league campaign.
