Mileage Increases Again For 2013/14

20 May 2013

Pools will travel the best part of 10,000 miles next season to complete their fixtures in the League Two campaign.

The mileage for round trips has gone up just over 600 miles on 2012/13, though it hasn't quite reached the heights of 2010/11 when the squad covered a record-breaking 10,500 miles. 

Next season's total - stadium to stadium, there and back - will be just over 9,725 miles (up from 9,114 last term), with fans set to spend plenty of time on the motorways following the team around the country. 

The longest trip will be to Plymouth Argyle's Home Park which is some 387.2 miles away from Victoria Park, while Exeter City is 344.9 miles and Portsmouth weighs in at 326.5 miles. 

Fans will no doubt be looking forward to a league return to York City's Bootham Crescent which - at just 58.1 miles - is the closest stadium in League Two to The Vic. 

There will also be new grounds to tick off during the campaign, with Pools set to make their first-ever visits to AFC Wimbledon (278.8 miles), Burton Albion* (150.1 miles), Morecambe (124.8 miles) and Newport County* (279.8 miles).

*Although Pools have played away at these clubs in the past, they are now playing at a different venue.
