Pompey to Colchester
Sorry, I got it wrong by 6 miles.
car 147 miles each way = 294 round trip.
We are talking about Division 4 football and their 3rd year in a row there,after two relegations , not top Championship football.
Pompey took 2,500 away to Colchester and they double our away support on average.
We took to Reading 2,348 fans, but we turn up three times a season away and thats our best this season.
Bit of confusion here sorry, I thought you was saying it was a 300 miles round trip from Pompey to Stevenage.
I am not knocking their support but nevertheless I'm just saying its a close trip and they are in an automatic promotion spot and played a team that are also going for 3rd place, I'm not that surprised they took 1400, I don't think its that impressive.
If they could of had 3,000 tickets today,they would of sold everyone of them and yes its not far.
But Pompey fans travel no matter how far.
They've been taking this away support 3 years running in this division, honestly they should be respected for their loyal,large away support no matter what, I love looking out for them every week
We are talking about Div 4.
We barely took 1,500 to Burnley to win the Championship for the first time in our history, we could pay on the day and had an allocation of 2,500, I was there.
Yet years ago we would of taken 5,000 for such a big game.
