Football fans set record for driving to all 20 Premier League clubs in 14 hours

Two football fans created a new record by driving to all 20 Premier League clubs in just over 14 hours.

Teacher Paul Cox and Spanish pal Luis Felipe completed the 572-mile trip in 14hrs 3mins 18secs. This knocked 46mins off Paul’s previous unofficial record.

They kicked off at 9.35pm at White Hart Lane, home of Tottenham Hotspur, and finished at Newcastle United’s St James’ Park at 11.38am next morning.

They parked their Vauxhall Corsa at every ground to take pictures. Apart from that they only stopped for petrol and a couple of coffees.

Paul, a Derby County fan from Burton-on-Trent, Staffs, said “I got to show Luis the delights of a Wigan sunrise.

“And we celebrated the end with two Geordies in Shearer’s Bar. Luis couldn’t understand a word they said.”

The trip is not recognised as a Guinness World Record. But the pals challenge anyone to beat their time.
