How the 24 Championship club ranks when it comes to away followings

The World Cup break is upon us and for the next three weeks or so, attention will turn from supporting your Championship club to your country at the World Cup.

The likelihood is that you'll be supporting the England national team in Qatar, but there are also Welsh teams in Cardiff City and Swansea City, who of course will be supporting Wales, who have qualified for the first time in 64 years. England and Wales are in the same group and will meet on Tuesday, November 29.

Clubs in the Championship this season have had to play a majority of their season before things start in Qatar and for most teams, they are two games shy of the half-way point. Boxing Day is usually when teams are half-way of the 46-game season, but that should be achieved by then with the action set to resume on Saturday, December 10.

To make for a hectic schedule, there have been plenty of midweek matches and that has meant fans have had to travel on coaches or train straight after work and starting shifts jut before it to support their teams. Some clubs, their support is exceptional and boast huge numbers, sometimes because of their geographical location.

For Bristol City, they are one of the clubs that has to travel the furthest, travelling 3688 miles, which on average is 160.3 per game. Their final away match before the break was their longest, Middlesbrough away in which they drew 1-1 after Andi Weimann opened the scoring.

Their Severnside rivals Swansea City have to travel the furthest with it being 215-miles on average for their matches, which racks up a total of 4965 miles over the course of the season. Here we take a look at which clubs boast the best away support over the course of the 2022/23 campaign.
