Must See EFL Championship TV
The EFL Championship is a highly charged, 100mph brand of soccer played between some of the biggest clubs in English football. It’s always a closely contested affair, with the top two teams each season getting automatic promotion to the Premier League. The four teams below then go into a knock-out playoff competition – the final being one of the richest one game prizes in world football.
This year there are several teams in with a shout at the top, including three sides relegated from the Premier League last year in Norwich, Bournemouth and Watford. But this topsy turvy league means that there are many more in the mix, who have had their place in England’s top flight during seasons past. Teams like Middlesbrough, Reading and Swansea have great, youthful squads, all looking for their big promotion pay day.
