Time for photos of away fans in the stands, we will be taking a look at all the different ones at this weekend’s English football matches.
Unfortunately we are seeing a slightly disrupted schedule for the Premier League, EFL, Non League and FA Trophy due to Covid, however there are still some games going ahead and thankfully lots of travelling supporters are still able to attend fixtures up and down the country.
During a very difficult time for everyone, clubs are welcoming back full crowds and get back to hearing some noise to make what football is all about.
Some clubs were briefly allowed limited crowds during last season – but for others, August will see them play in front of their own supporters in a competitive match for the first time since early 2020.
The opening few weeks of the season had plenty of emotion for thousands of fans up and down the country as they returned to places that mean so much to them.
The away day experience is one of the very best parts of following your own team, and although your alarm may be set for times of the day that, frankly, should never be seen, you still excitedly cram onto coaches or overpriced trains, and the whole experience, regardless of result, is still one you’ll always remember.
As long as trains and buses are on time, the pre-match pint and grub is a vital part of the whole match day experience.
It may be tough to find a pub without hostile home fans, but it’s always possible to duck into a nice little ‘boozer’ for a bevvy before kick-off.
While much of the ‘away day’ experience takes place out of the stadium, the ground itself always plays a big part.
The days of old in which away fans were in roof-less terraces being battered by the elements are becoming a distant memory – albeit they are still a problem at some settings – with modern stadia now spacious and comfortable.
Right then, time to look at photos of those away ends…
