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.

Getting more difficult as age takes its control but absolutely adore my trips to The Cottage.

120 mile round trip for me.

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

Well over 400 miles having to fly into Gatwick.  On Saturdays leave home at 9am and get back 9pm if no delays
