Away Games

The distances in the US mitigate against fans traveling to see away games. There is often a number of fans of the visiting team at A’s game, but these are usually people who live in the area, but support the other team.

On Thursday, on way back to the UK I was sat next to someone who was traveling to see an anyway game. He had flown out from San Francisco and was on the Dallas flight to London. He and his brother were going to see the 49ers play an NFL game at Wembley. That is about 11,000 mile round trip for a game.
