World's Longest Soccer Road Trips

These are the longest road trips (at least 3,000km) around the world for clubs that play in the same league. I chose to include only the longest trips from each league because clubs like Luch-Energia Vladivostok and Perth Glory are pretty much thousands of miles from every team in their leagues.

Baltika Kaliningrad (Russia B) to SKA-Energia Khabarovsk (Russia B) - 7026km

4,058 miles
Zenit St. Petersburg (Russia) to Luch-Energia Vladivostok (Russia) - 6531km
