Football Travel Stories Wanted

Football Travel Stories Wanted


Being a Wigan Athletic fan or just a football fan in general can drive you to all lengths in order to see your beloved team play and no doubt at times we have all done something a little quirky in order to watch the game live.


A contact of Vital Football, Claire Snook from Inside Media is looking for fans that have interesting stories on getting to football games, something quirky, different, outlandish or just interesting, its all for a case study that is being conducted on behalf of the national press.

Claire explains: 'I`m looking for football fans who have taken extreme measures to get to a football game and was wondering if you knew anyone with an interesting story? It`s for a case study for the national press.'

If you have anything, contact: claire.snook@insidemedia.uk.com and feel free to post in the article comments or forum if you have any interesting stories! Lets share, you know you want to.

I know that both Kent and avantsweater, two Vital Latics members and Wigan fans have had adventures getting to games, especially with the distances that they travel, and I think I scared the life out of baskerville when going to Middlesbrough last season, he had a full head of jet black hair before he ventured into my sporty Ford Focus, Wigan to Boro in just over one hour.

I have a mate, Bob Cross, he is a Hartlepool fan and during the last petrol strike he drove down from the North East to Torquay on a Wednesday to watch the Monkey Hangers play a midweek game on the South Coast, Sky News were that taken with the trip that they had regular updates from Bob just to see if he could make it, which he did.

Someone must have a really interesting or funny tale, so lets get it shared.
