Title: What is the average distance travelled by home supporters to Fulham fc.
Post by: Southdowns White on January 16, 2020, 03:28:35 PM
If you could draw a circle around Craven Cottage, at which point would you get a 50% split of supporters living inside and outside of that circle. I would imagine it's something like 15 miles.
 There can't be that many left within 2 miles as the price of housing excludes the average person, even out in what I used to call the sticks New Malden and Chessington the house prices exclude many.
I and many others live in Sussex and I certainly know of others in the Home Counties, The Midlands and even Scotland who travel down for a few home games each season.

Someone (MJG?) produced a map of supporter locations a few years ago - not sure if this link will work:

Great Map, haven,t seen this for a few years, I am surprised at how few there are in Hammersmith and Fulham. I can certainly add a few more down here in Sussex that aren't on the map and that's just within my village + 2 more families in a neighbouring village.  Many of us grew up within a mile of the ground, others in Putney and Battersea.

Map works well, though I am a tad suspicious of how many hits (5) there are in Indianapolis! I only know of one other FFC supporter in that area, and she lives in the same house as I do! Though two of the Zip Codes do refer to my last two abodes over the past 5 years, as well as the tickets we got (JH stand & Hammy End).

Oh, and round trip is about 8250 for us, if we go via O'Hare.

I used to regularly go from Brighton and back. Once drove from the Scottish Borders where I was on holiday to Brighton to pick up a mate then to Fulham for the game. Those were the days.

Quite a few of us down here in Brighton and Hove who still make the journey when the trains are running and even when they aren't.

if I remember correctly, in compiling the data, MJG (if it was he) asked people to submit their postcodes/zipcodes themselves.  And I'm not sure how many years ago it was so the McBride, Dempsey, Bocanegra effect may have waned since then.

Is it possible to add members names/monikers to location or is this against data protection?

210 mile round trip. I'm a season ticket holder. Dislike evening kick offs. So many M3 closures at night add to journey times.

its not against data protection but while I'd like to add a name I think security wise it's best not to. On a personal level I had an issue on another site where my address was made publically available and I had a few issues with that. Google maps can narrow down to a street or an individual house in some instances and I dont think anyone really wants that.

3000 miles. Boston usa once a year. Almost every year for last 20 and only seen 1 (one ) defeat.  Sunderland in the relegation year (4-0) I think.

Even our last relegation...my 2 games were Southampton (3-2) and Leicester (1-1). It all went downhill after that I guess.
