Mine probably isn't as far as some of you, but Molineux was the farthest me and my bro went to watch the Blues. Was the Andy Thompson testimonial game for Wolves in 1996, where Wisey scored to clinch a 1 nil win. Due to work and family I've not been able to go to away games for ages.

Though the Wolves one was a nice one as it was a good trip with my brother. Recently found the programme along with a tonne of others whilst having a clear out. Brought back great memories.

7300+ miles come October. Visiting europe for the first time...all the way from Hawaii and plan to be in london during a champions league and bpl week. I am beyond excited.

Top man! What part of Hawaii you from? Got married in Maui 18 months ago. Stayed there and Oahu, a wonderful trip .

As for the question, it's a tough one. Sofia perhaps?

yeah it's pretty hard t beat Hawaii to travel to the Bridge as far as distance is covered.  Unless my travels from Washington state, to Scotland and then down to the bridge count?

 

Love Hawaii.  Visited Maui before, but want to experience something more "local"

Yeah i know what you mean. We stayed in an area that was fantastic but really geared up for tourists (though it was still beautiful) we had to drive to the east side of the island to find anything which i guess was a bit more authentic. There i found the most beautiful place ive ever been to - Nahiku. This is now my 'lottery' place!

 

Anyway, sorry ive hijacked the thread a bit here

We live in Dorset.

Been to Newcastle & Sunderland a couple of times. Its about 360 miles each way.

Every home game is about 125 miles each way, we are season ticket holders. But the furthest we have travelled was to Ath Madrid which is about 1100 miles each way for a CL game.

We are lightweights though as a couple of our group have been to Japan & The states in the last couple of years

I never managed to make a European away trip, so the furthest i went was either Newcastle or Carlisle. Me and a mate hitchhiked to Carlisle one time, but took a wrong turn on the A1, so ended up in Newcastle. Fortunately we weren't long getting a lift across country, taking the scenic route along the Hadrians Wall Road.

 

I also hitched up to Newcastle a couple of times, one time with a couple of the North End Road Boys, and also a few years earlier when I was 16, I hiched up there on my todd. I saw very few Chelsea there that day but got on fine. The Geordies I met mostly thought we were great for going all that way.

Been up to Newcastle for an away day and loved it, the 4 of us had a few pints in the home bar at the stadium before the game, the fans were friendly.

I'd love to go see us play in a champions league away game - is it hard to get tickets if a member with low points?

Not sure. Have you an option to join a supporters club local to you? Which area do you live? Look at this map for contact details http://www.chelseafc.com/supporters-clubs

Worth, if you can joining them and you might well find that they can help you out when trying to get match day tickets be it home or away.

We have been to a few games in Europe they are great fun and if you get a chance to go on one I would recommend

Used to travel from Cumbria to at least half the home games a season, got less and less over the years then ended up going to most away games in the north. Now rarely get the chance to go to any unfortunately. Been into Europe twice in 94 to Vienna and bruge. So Vienna is the furthest.

Tromsø?

 

Every game is far from me as I live in Norway, Birmingham last weekend was probably the furthest Ive traveled.

Id say Sofia is further ....though im no georgraphical expect. Recall it only took a few hours to fly to Tromso but it was ages ago so i cant really recall.

 

It certainly felt more remote thats for sure. Without doubt the coldest and (most expensive) place i have been to.

Yeah it might be closer in actual travel time. Sad thing is Tromsø is actually considered a fairly cheap place in Norway.

Yes its very possible. The further away the tie the better the chance you will have, though in reality we often dont sell our full allocation, certainly not for the early rounds of CL games anyway.

 

Id recommend Germany as the best away trips. Best food, best beer, best stadiums and you are left to your own devices and not treated as trouble by the local authorities. They certainly know how to do it over there thats for sure.

Do you reckon from here on in its very difficult to get, should we go to Bayern or Dortmund for example?
