The English Football League Championship (Skybet EFL Championship) in a nutshell.

England Championship The second-highest football league in England right after the England Premier League. You might think for yourself, why bother watching this when we have the EPL? The top 2 finishing clubs get promoted to the Premier League and 4 following clubs will battle it out to get a promotion to the EPL.

The Football League is made up of 69 elite association football teams from England and three from Wales. It runs the world's oldest competitive football league competition. It also organizes the EFL Cup and EFL Trophy, two knockout cup competitions. William McGregor, then-director of Aston Villa, created the Football League in 1888, with 12 member clubs.

The League had 92 clubs by 1950, due to gradual expansion and the addition of new divisions. Financial factors triggered a significant disruption in 1992 when the Football League's top clubs split off to form their own competition, the FA Premier League, which was called the Premier League in 2007. As a result, the Football League no longer comprises the top 20 teams from this division, though promotion and relegation between the Football League and the Premier League remain. Up to 2013, 136 clubs competed in the Football League (including those in the Premier League, since clubs must pass through the Football League before reaching the former).

1. Competition rule of the English Football League

24 teams play against each other twice, once on their home turf and one at the respective opponents. The standings are based on the points given to each team, they get 3 for a win, 1 for both teams per draw, none for a loss. When 2 teams tie for standing, the goal difference, Head to Head status and if everything ends up equal, they get to play a play-off match to settle the standing.

2. It’s only second-tier soccer, or is it?

The average audience around the world is fed a lot of soccer, EPL, Bundesliga, La Liga, and whatnot. It is only natural that second-tier soccer can seem to interest anyone, but Sky Bet Championship proves otherwise, the final between Hull City and Sheffield Wednesday racked up £250 million pounds for the victorious, and that is not the reward ceiling. Surely that’s the only catch, right? That and the prospect of securing a top 6 finish to get the chance to be promoted to the EPL as well. There are 24 teams in a total of the EFL, which means one-fourth of the team is given the chance to compete at the top-flight of England. That also means they are given even more chances internationally if they manage to pull through and get a top 6 finish in EPL.

3. Reformation

The Football League was rebranded for the first time in 2004–05. The Football League Championship, Football League One, and Football League Two replaced the First, Second, and Third Divisions, respectively. Coca-Cola took over as title sponsor from the Nationwide Building Society. The National Football Museum houses the Football League's historic materials. The Football League revealed on November 12, 2015, that it will be formally called the English Football League, with the abbreviation EFL stressed, with effect from the start of the 2016–17 season. The rebranding will involve a new emblem made of three swaths of 24 smaller circles each. The three swathes are supposed to denote the three leagues, and the 24 circles in each swathe (for a total of 72 circles) are supposed to represent the 72 clubs in the league structure.

5. Trivia

1.When Norwich City qualified for the English Premier League, they were the first team to be relegated from, relegated to, promoted from, and promoted to the Championship. 2.With its promotion from second place with 93 points, they upheld the record for most points for the second-place team, which was matched by Brighton & Hove Albion in the 2016-17 season. 3.West Bromwich Albion bested Darwen 12 to nil on 4th April 1892 4.Nottingham Forest also beat Leicester Fosse 12-0 on 21st March 1909 5.Billy Sharp and Rickie Lambert ties for highest scoring with 30 goals 6.Peter Shilton appeared 1005 times in the entirety of his career with 849 matches in the EFL Norwich City Ranging from rising stars to battle-hardened old dogs, the Championship is really a mix between adept and erratic, a field suitable for diverse stratagems and carefully calculated strategy. Some of the worlds’ most respectable coaches,i.e: Rafael Benitez, Roberto Di Mateo are down to coach here in the EFL, making it even more worthwhile to watch.
