The Football League Championship is the second tier of English football after the Premier League, and is the richest non-top flight division in the world and the seventh wealthiest division in Europe. With some great teams gracing the Championship (often after stumbling out of the Premier League) there are some great matches and we’ll have the best betting odds for all of them!
Previously known as Division Two (from 1892 to 1992, when the forerunner of the Premier League was called Division One), then the Football League First Division (1992 to 2004), the winners receive the Football League Championship Trophy and promotion to the Premier League, the runners-up get automatic promotion and the teams finishing in positions three to six take place in the play-offs, the winner of which also gains promotion. There are 24 teams in all with teams playing one another home and away (thus having 46 matches each in a season, though more if they end up in the play-offs).
It is without doubt one of the most exciting divisions in Europe as teams battle tooth and nail to make it to the Premier League and the riches to be found at the pinnacle of English football. And we’ve got the best betting odds all along the way.
