Less Miles For U's Fans

31 May 2016

Shorter trips overall in 2016/17.

Following the weekend Play-Off fixtures, the U's now know the 23 teams they will be facing in League Two in 2016/17.

Colchester United fans will spend less time on the road next season - although there are some hefty trips included in their fixture list for the new campaign.

Despite the journeys to the likes of Carlisle, Hartlepool and Plymouth, the U's will travel 198 miles less next season with a total mileage of 8,130 if you attend every away game from August onwards.

That said, there are also a handful of very long trips, as the U's venture to all four corners of England and Wales in the next ten months.

The recently concluded campaign saw the team heading to the north west most weeks, but there are a raft of great local trips for fans to look forward to once things get underway in August.

The round-trip journeys that U's fans will have to make are as follows:-

122Leyton Orient
132Cambridge United Barnet 142
