Sheffield United: How far Blades fans will travel in 2022/23 as Championship trips stretch to COLOMBIA

When the Championship fixtures are unveiled at 9am on Thursday, June 23, Sheffield United fans can officially begin planning their weekends for the next year or so following their team up and down the country.

Although a short trip to Oakwell has been lost after Barnsley’s relegation back to League One, Rotherham United’s promotion ensures the Blades do have at least one local derby next season.

The relegations of Norwich City and Watford ensure two more long trips and in total, United supporters will travel over 5,200 miles if they go to every away league game next season (calculated as a round trip, to and from United’s Bramall Lane stadium) – roughly the distance between Sheffield and Bogotá, Colombia.

But where is their longest trip, which is the shortest and how many are in-between? We had a look at the distances from Bramall Lane for every away game when the new season kicks off – how many trips will you make?
