As the Founder of Away Grounds, I love travelling to watch football matches throughout the UK. I play soccer for Leigh Genesis FC and support Man Utd. I set up Away Grounds with the desire to share my passion for football with other like-minded footy fans. When travelling to away fixtures there was not enough information on a football away days guide so we have set up to bridge this gap. I apologise when I use the term "Soccer" but we have some US followers also lol
