West Bromwich Albion fans go the extra mile

Fans of West Bromwich Albion might want to consider looking into short breaks at the end of this football season after it was revealed they clock up the most miles each year.

Research from Virgin Money found that the average supporter of the Baggies travels 3,290 miles during the campaign, nearly 800 more than any other club.

Manchester City's supporters journeyed 2,471 miles to see their side in action, with Chelsea's followers travelling 2,416.

Grant Bather, spokesman for Virgin Money, said: "Football fans literally do go the extra mile supporting their club and it's good to see that clubs are doing what they can to keep costs down."

Malcolm Clarke, chair of the Football Supporters' Federation, added that these figures show the "incredible commitment" of fans around the country.

West Bromwich fans have two home games coming up in the next two weeks, before away days at Stoke City and Birmingham City.
