NEW boys Blackpool have the most loyal fans in the Premier League, a survey reveals.
Tangerines supporters plan to attend the most away games and are prepared to travel further than any others.
Arsenal's come out as the least dedicated, with one in five fans intending to go to away fixtures.
Researchers found that Blackpool's fans plan to attend six of their 19 away matches.
The supporters of manager Ian Holloway's team are ahead of West Brom and Wigan, says the poll by hire firm Europcar.
And Blackpool diehards would travel up to 171 miles, followed by those of Fulham (147) and West Brom (144).
But the average fan of Chelsea, Spurs and Man United intends to be at less than one away match - and United's would travel only 57 miles.
Most away games top five: Blackpool 5.6, West Brom 4.5, Wigan 4.4, Stoke 4.1, Fulham 3.1. Bottom five: Arsenal 0.2, Chelsea 0.4, Tottenham 0.6, Aston Villa 0.6, West Ham 0.7.
Top five in distance: Blackpool 171 miles, Fulham 147, West Brom 144, Stoke 127, Wigan 126. Bottom five: Manchester United 57, Aston Villa 58, Arsenal 64, Wolves 69, West Ham 73.
I do find this research to be a little odd and wonder how they have come to these figures?
Have these been calculated by Box offices for traveling fans?
Because to me it's more just like a they've asked a bunch of different fans...
I know Newcastle always claim to have the best traveling fans but I'd like to see real stats and facts on numbers filled by away tickets sold by fans.
On another point of view I heard a fan on the radio who claims to travel from Newcastle every Saturday down the A1 to watch his home team Southampton..... that's a pretty good effort to me.
