Norwich City supporters can expect to clock up over 8,000 miles following their side in the Sky Bet Championship next season.

A 538-mile round trip to face Cardiff City is the Canaries' longest haul, closely followed by a 514-mile trip to face Rafael Benítez's Magpies.

The East Anglia Derby against Ipswich will be the shortest trip for Alex Neil's side, coming in at just 94 miles, with a 246-mile round trip to Nottingham Forest City's second shortest outing.

In total City supporters who go to every away game will cover around 8,052 miles this term, a figure calculated using the AA Route Planner, with Carrow Road as a start point. That's the equivalent of going from Norwich to Delhi, India, and back again.

Norwich City's travelling army witnessed three wins, two draws and 14 defeats on the road last term including dismal displays away at Aston Villa and Bournemouth.
