There are many reasons why people travel in the name of sport. For some, it's about being active, keeping fit and exploring new surroundings - whether it's on foot or by bike, or on land or in the sea. For others, it's about supporting their team and joining fellow fans in a pilgrimage to a stadium or arena that is far from home - and enjoying a new destination while they're at it.
