About This Competition

The England Championship or EFL Championship (English Football League Championship) is the second level of professional football in England. It is the highest division of the English Football League and sits just below the Premier League. The Championship is often described as the toughest of the UK based leagues, with teams fighting for promotion. Promotion from this league comes with a serious cash boost to the club, and promotion to the Premier League. There are 24 clubs fighting for the right to play in the Championship. This league is predominantly made up of English teams, with two Welsh teams. The Championship plays for two domestic cups in the FA Cup and League Cup. Qualification to the UEFA Europa League is possible through both domestic cups. Relegation takes the bottom three teams to League One football.
