    Every weekend, football fans travel across the country to see if their favorite team can pick up some points away from home. To make the trek just a little easier, the Barclays Premier League has launched an Away Days app with everything you need to know.

    Once you’ve selected a team you’ll get a vertical list of upcoming fixtures. Tapping each one will display a dashboard with all sorts of useful information; when and how to buy tickets, the best route for finding the stadium, exclusive offers and discounts, and some history about the grounds.

    One of the best features is the “Where To” section, which will give you a map with the best places to park, drink, eat and crash for the night. Local experts can also submit their own suggestions for travelling fans – I suspect a few red herrings will sneak in over the coming season.
