Fans travel thousands of miles to follow their team in domestic pre-season friendlies

Posted by | App News, Features | No Comments

– Dedicated fans forced to travel thousands of miles to follow their team through domestic pre-season friendlies
– Exeter and Everton to travel over 2,000 miles through the pre-season period
– Many Premier League clubs no longer playing domestic friendlies, choosing lucrative overseas matches and hosting mini international tournaments instead

Motorway service stations, early morning trains and exhausting coach journeys are no strangers to the most dedicated of football fans. As pre-season friendlies get underway, our research reveals the lengths that football clubs are forcing fans to travel in order to watch their club prepare for the upcoming season. CrowdScores analysed every single pre-season fixture, totalling up the number of domestic miles fans would have to cover to follow their team around the UK.

Longest Distance Travelled Pre Season Friendlies Oldham Athletic Brighton Rotherham United Everton Exeter City

Exeter City fans will rack up a staggering 2514 miles.

 

For some of these truly dedicated fans, it will be an epic journey. Supporters of League Two Exeter City have the furthest to travel, an enormous 2,514 miles, equivalent to a return journey to Naples. The Devon club’s pre-season schedule sees the team playing away fixtures against Scottish teams East Fife and Arbroath as well as Weston Super Mare, Bodmin Town and AFC St Austell. Fans taking the train to all of these away fixtures would have to spend around £667 on fares, enough for a last-minute 14 night holiday in Orlando, Florida.

The single biggest distance any one club is travelling for a pre-season fixture is Brighton & Hove Albion. The Seagulls are travelling to Aberdeen to play a testimonial match for Jamie Langfield. As fans of one of the country’s most southerly clubs, any Seagulls supporters making the trip to the Pittodrie Stadium will have to cover over 1,000 miles to reach the home of one of the UK’s most northerly.

Not all clubs are travelling huge distances in pre-season, however. League One Burton Albion FC are travelling the shortest distance, covering just 26 miles with away friendlies against non-league Gresley FC and Mickleover Sports FC. Crystal Palace are bucking the Premier League trend, choosing to play the majority of the friendlies locally against the likes of Fulham and Dagenham & Redbridge, resulting in only 55 miles for their loyal followers to cover within the UK.

Burton Albion fans have it easy only having to travel a mere 26 miles.

Fixture Release Day & New League Coverage

Posted by | App News | No Comments

Fixture Release Day

With the inevitable boredom that comes with a summer without domestic football the first signs that there is light at the end of tunnel is fixture release day. The majority of football fans look straight for the opening, final, boxing and new years day games along with local derbies first and hope that none of these clash with a friends wedding or a significant others birthday.

Clubs are now embracing the hype that surrounds fixture release day on social media and #FixtureReleaseDay spent the majority of 17th June trending in the UK.

The Vidiprinter in full action.

Vidiprinter

Every Saturday afternoon football fans tune in to see Jeff Stelling and Co announce the latest football scores from around the country aided by a handy Vidiprinter (or Videprinter) at the bottom of the screen. We’ve been hard at work trying to emulate this and think you’ll be impressed. So regardless of whether you’re a Premier League or Isthmian League fan you’ll see your team’s latest updates appear on the Vidiprinter feed.

Did You Know? 

In its early days the Vidiprinter was called a Teleprinter and actually showed a printer unveiling scores with a presenter announcing them as they came in.

Match Timeline

We’ve overhauled our old match screen and introduced a minimalist design. The new match timeline is split into two sides so goalscorers are clearly displayed and more match events can be shown than before.
