Away Fixture Distances for 2015/16

7 June 2015

Sponsored by

The fixture lists will be announced on June 17, and then it will be time to dust off the road maps, plug in the sat navs and buckle up for another year on the road with the Spireites.

Last season the Spireites army of away support was on average the seventh highest in Sky Bet League 1, with an aerage of 994 going to away games - a figure that would be dramtically larger if incuding the cup competitions and the incredible support at Derby, Scunthorpe United and MK Dons.

While the list of times and miles may look more than a little daunting when totalled, the league has - from a Spireites' point of view - become fairly localised.

The seven new teams from 2014/15 who have come up or gone down to League One have reduced the total distance to be travelled next season from 2,212 to just (just?) 2,141, and cutting nearly three hours from the time needed to get to the 23 away games in the process.

A full list of the journey distances and times can be found below:
