Plymouth Argyle fans make 812 mile (12 hours) round trip to watch their team

Plymouth Argyle are one of the unluckiest teams in England as they have to travel the most miles every year to play matches.

When they have away days, usually it’s a long winded coach journey up the country which can be very gruelling for the players and fans alike.

Plymouth Argyle was founded in 1886 as Argyle Football Club. The club adopted its current name in 1903. The club are one of the oldest football clubs in existence.

The club has recently just equalled the record for the longest away day trip.

This incredible journey saw fans waking up at the crack of dawn, ready to traverse the lengthy distance and support their beloved team.

The supporters embarked on a remarkable 13-hour, 812-mile round trip to Sunderland, marking one of the joint-longest away days in the English Football League (EFL).

Sunderland won the match 3-1 thanks to goals from Ekwah, Jack Clarke and Jobe Bellingham.

But for Plymouth regardless of the result, the determination and passion to travel so far to watch your beloved club is something to be admired.
