One of the main factors behind Nottingham Forest’s promotion to the Premier League was the support given to the players by the fans.
Sold out City Ground attendances and packed out away ends having swapped from being an irregular sight to what is expected of Forest fans, and it will almost certainly be the same following their return to the top-flight.
Steve Cooper will guide Forest into the Premier League for the first-time in 23 years and Reds fans will be excited about the different stadiums they will now get to visit.

Next season will see the Reds return to some of England’s most historic stadiums – Old Trafford, Anfield, Goodison Park to name a few – as well as more modern arenas such as the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. But how far exactly will Reds fans be travelling next season? We have tried our best to crunch the numbers.
Forest face at least seven trips to London as they take on Arsenal, Brentford, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Tottenham and West Ham. Those journeys alone add up to a round-trip of 1938 miles from the City Ground. The 29.3 miles to Leicester City makes them Forest’s nearest Premier League rivals next term, closely followed by Aston Villa (50) and Wolves (60.1).
Forest fans will be hoping for a little bit more fortune than last season when they prepare to visit Bournemouth. It is a 195-mile journey from the City Ground down to Dean Court. In total, the Reds will amass around 4,602 miles when following Forest across the country.

Leicester City – 29.3 miles
Aston Villa – 50 miles
