For the most tourist-like of away fans Bournemouth beach is 2.5 miles from the Vitality Stadium. Inside the ground the away supporters are located on one side of the East Stand with normal allocation for between 1,500-2000 seats. The food on offer includes a range of pies all £3.50, a selection of burgers and hot-dogs for £4 each.

Brighton moved to the AMEX Stadium in July 2011. This meant the club had their own permanent home since leaving Hove’s Goldstone Ground in 1997.

They would pitch up at Withdean athletics track in Brighton from 1999 to 2011 before moving a little out of the Brighton and Hove area to Falmer.

The current stadium has already expanded its capacity from 22,374 to 30,750 in 2013.

Falmer Station is now the nearest station with shuttles running every ten minutes on match-days from Brighton station. The club offer home and away fans free travel on buses and trains within the Free Travel Zone. You can use your match-day ticket, season ticket, or proof of match-day ticket purchase to use most services.

Away fans are located in the south-east corner of the ground between east and south lower-tiers. This gives a capacity of 3,300 to the travelling support.

For any Premier League pie connoisseur, a steak and ale will set you back £4.10 – the most expensive in the league.

With a shortage of amenities around the ground, it’s recommended to spend the full day in the city.

Turf Moor sits just half a mile east from Burnley city centre and surrounded by the River Brun.

It’s been home to Burnley FC since 1883 after taking over the premises from the Cricket Club.

In getting to the stadium your best option is to go via Burnley Manchester Road (1m) rather than Burnley Central station (0.9m). Although slightly closer, the intervening river Brun extends the commute.

Away fans take up the David Fishwick Stand which lies on the Western side of the pitch behind the goal.

This typically takes a 4,000 allocation. If you fancy a pint in the ground it’ll set you back £3.50.

A pie prices up at £3 with the souvenir of a match-day programme at £3.

The Etihad, formerly known as the City of Manchester Stadium has played host to Manchester City’s home games since 2003.

Although it was used for the city’s subsequent hosting of the 2002 Commonwealth Games.

The ground is the centre point of SportCity, which includes many other sporting venues such as a cycling velodrome, squash centre and a multi-purpose facility.

The closest railway station to the Etihad Stadium is Ashburys, which is served by Manchester Piccadilly. It’s only a 15-minute walk to the stadium.

Alternatively, if you don’t want the hassle of changing trains, you can walk directly from Manchester Piccadilly, which will take around 25 minutes.

St Mary’s Stadium has been the home of Southampton since 2001. The stadium name is a nod to nostalgia when the team were called Southampton St. Mary’s.

The stadium is a complete bowl and there’s also a translucent panel to maximize the amount of light that can get to the grass.

Southampton Central rail station is 1.6miles from the stadium and approximately a 30-minute walk. However, many fans choose to stop at the various pubs that line the city’s Western Esplanade and Above Bar Street.

There’s also the West Quay Shopping Centre and West Quay II, which has many restaurants to cater to your crowd.

However, Southampton FC is probably best known for its former ground The Dell.

The stadium was their home from 1898 until 2001. It was located in Milton Road just off Hill Lane which is now taken up by a heavy student population in the polygon area.

The Dell held 15,271 fans with their Premier League record goal-scorer being Matthew Le Tissier with 56 goals. They were 470 goals scored with a goal per game ratio of 2.66.

This is Tottenham’s one and only season playing their home games at Wembley. They will return to a refurbished and reconstructed White Hart Lane from this coming season (2018-19).

The Lane as many fans call it is situated at one end of Seven Sisters Road. This road is best known for being the link between Spurs and their North London rivals Arsenal.

For National Rail and London Underground services, fans can travel to Tottenham Hale on the Victoria Line and Liverpool Street route. This is commonly a 20-minute walk to the stadium.

Alternative methods can see you travel to Northumberland Park Overground operated by Greater Anglia.

The new stadium will house 61,000 spectators however at this stage away segregation has not been announced.

Tottenham High Road has an array of pubs, restaurants and supermarkets to grab some food and drink before and after the football.

Before the refurb of White Hart Lane, it had been home to Spurs since 1899. Jermain Defoe was top scorer at the old ground with 60 goals with the capacity at 36,284. There were 1,342 goals with a strike every 2.979 per game.

Richard loves his sport, especially if it involves the sound of tyres screaming around a race track. He's not fussy though and his '90s Premier League nostalgia and knowledge of team nicknames is tough to match.
