Time for photos of away fans in the stands, we will be taking a look at all the different ones at this weekend’s English football matches.
Lots of travelling supporters are still able to attend fixtures up and down the country and however there is a travel disruption due to the rail strike.
During a very difficult time for everyone, last season saw clubs welcoming back full crowds and get back to hearing some noise to make what football is all about. This continues with capacity returning back to normal.
The away day experience is one of the very best parts of following your own team, and although your alarm may be set for times of the day that, frankly, should never be seen, you still excitedly cram onto coaches or overpriced trains, and the whole experience, regardless of result, is still one you’ll always remember.
As long as trains and buses are on time, the pre-match pint and grub is a vital part of the whole match day experience.
It may be tough to find a pub without hostile home fans, but it’s always possible to duck into a nice little ‘boozer’ for a bevvy before kick-off.
While much of the ‘away day’ experience takes place out of the stadium, the ground itself always plays a big part.
The days of old in which away fans were in roof-less terraces being battered by the elements are becoming a distant memory – albeit they are still a problem at some settings – with modern stadia now spacious and comfortable.
