WREXHAM supporters will clock up just over 6,000 following their team in League One next season.

Phil Parkinson's side finished runners-up in League Two this term and clinched back-to-back promotions for the first time in the club's history.

The Red and White army travelled 5,870 following Wrexham in 2023-24 as their side amassed 88 points from 46 games, a club record in the Football League.

Fans spent far less time on the road - and saved a lot of money - after notching up 7,794 miles when the Reds were crowned National League champions following a record-breaking 2022-23 campaign.

Wrexham still travelled in big numbers as the 15-year non-league nightmare came to an end and they will do again next season in League One when 6,006 miles will be clocked up.

That is just 136 miles more than this term when of the 23 games Wrexham played away from The Racecourse, 16 clubs attracted their highest home league attendance of the campaign for the fixture against the Reds.

There was also a cross-border derby against local rivals Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup third round when Wrexham won 1-0 and sprang an upset, and the clubs will meet again in 2024-25.

The Croud Stadium, a mere 34 miles from The Racecourse, is just a 68-mile round trip and is the closest away game.

Supporters will be pleased to know that Shrewsbury is one of 11 matches under 100 miles away as Wrexham also come up against Stockport County (51), Wigan Athletic (52), Bolton Wanderers (63), Burton Albion (75), Birmingham City  (81), Huddersfield Town (82), Barnsley (87), Blackpool (87), Rotherham United (92) and Mansfield Town 97

Trips to Northampton Town (128), Lincoln City (129), Bristol Rovers (158), Peterborough United (159), Cambridge United (175), Wycombe Wanderers (176), Stevenage (177) and Reading (195) will be bearable when the Reds play in the third tier for the first time since the 2004-05 season.

At the other end of the scale, only four fixtures are over 200 miles away.

The furthest journey is to Crawley Town, who beat Crewe Alexandra 2-0 in Sunday's League Two play-off final at Wembley, when fans will travel 236 miles to the Broadfield Stadium.

Leyton Orient (207), Charlton Athletic (229) and Exeter City (233) are the other long treks as Wrexham come up against teams they haven't faced for years.

Supporters haven't got long to wait until they can start making travel arrangements, overnight stays or even plans for home games.

The EFL has announced that fixtures for 2024-25 will be released on Wednesday June 26 at 9am.

The season kicks-off over the weekend of August 10-11, with the regular league campaign ending on May 3, 2025.

The 46 rounds of League One matches will take place over 36 weekends, six midweeks and four Bank Holidays.

The Carabao Cup begins in mid-August and the Group Stage of the Football League Trophy, involving League One, League Two and 16 invited under-21 Premier League teams, starts in early September. 

The Play-Offs will take place over the 2025 May Bank Holiday weekend.
