How do you fancy an 11000 mile trip to watch a league game, that's what will happen in Russia.

That could potentially be further is Baltika could make the Russian Premier League, they are based in Kaliningrad, the former East Prussia.

The Actual longest trip in football can sometimes Come in the French Cup with teams from French Polynesia occasionly playing a team from New Caledonia...about 12,000 miles each way...

Good job I don't hitch-hike to away games, like I did as a kid. :roll:

This reminds me of Sarf coming up from Southend on a regular basis. One year he and his youngest daughter got a season ticket as a birthday present. I think that year they went to every game. His wife said that she only expected to go to home games, Sarf replied that every away game was nearer than home games at Darlo. I miss Sarf.
