93 IN 188: World Record attempt to take place this season

Brunton Park to be visited as part of epic journey

26 June 2018

During the 2016-17 football season, Ed Wood, a Derby County supporter, watched a match at all 92 Premier and Football League grounds in England.

Starting at Bristol Rovers in August and finishing at Rochdale in February, it took Ed a total of 189 days to watch a match at each of the 92 grounds across the country. 

In doing so, Ed set a new Guinness World Record for the fastest time to watch a match at each league ground.

In fact, the total number of football grounds visited was 93, as those taking on this particular challenge must also visit Berwick Rangers, who play in the Scottish League, but whose ground is located in England.

Two years later, Des Hinks, a Stockport County fan and actor from Cheshire, is currently working through an itinerary following the release of the new fixtures for the 2018-19 season, before attempting to break the record.

During the challenge, Des will also be raising money for the Depression Alliance charity.

Potentially, the world record attempt could still be starting, or finishing, at Brunton Park.

To find out where Des will kick off his world record attempt, and to keep an eye on his progress over the coming months, you can follow @93in188 on Twitter, or ‘Like’ 93in188 on Facebook.
