Despite the MLS being split into an East and West Conference, the size of the US means MLS teams still have to do huge amounts of travelling (teams play other sides from their own conference twice, and sides from the opposite conference once).

A keen fan at Stumptown Footy has been working out which teams have the most gruelling schedule.

Here’s the top 3:

3) Portland Timbers – 41,448 miles

2) Orlando City – 43,803 miles

1) Vancouver Whitecaps – 45,661 miles
