About The Championship

The Championship is the second tier of English football, and it sits behind the Premier League in the English football pyramid system.

Widely regarded as one of the most competitive leagues in the world, it is not hard to see why as 24 teams commence battle over 46 gruelling encounters to see who can make it to the promised of the Premier League. It is because of the prize on offer that the Championship betting markets see so much action and the intensity of the league is brought to the fore.

Despite sitting behind the Premier League, the Championship is the highest league in the English Football League (EFL) and has come under a number of guises.

For example, from its inception from 1892 all the way until the dawn of the breakaway Premier League, England’s second tier was known as Division two.

From the Premier League onwards the division then became Division one and then in 2004 the Football League had a major rebrand and it became what it is today, the English Championship.

So, how does it work?

As mentioned above, 24 teams go head to head in 46 home and away matches throughout the course of the season.

With so many places up for grabs the competition is fierce and the desire to stay out of the bottom three and away from the Championship odds for relegation becomes a must.

Those sides that end the campaign drop out of the league and into the third tier League One whilst three sides then earn promotion via League One.

That retains a promotion/relegation cycle that adds new elements to the Championship betting each season.

At the other end of the table, the top two sides earn themselves a golden ticket to the Premier League and the sides who finish third to sixth enter a play off.

Third place plays sixth in a two-legged contest and fourth plays fifth over two legs and the aggregate winner over both matches then face each other in the play off final.

This match is often billed as the richest game in football as the prize for promotion to the Premier League is untold financial riches.

Current Premier League outfit Crystal Palace hold the record for winning the Play off final having earned promotion four times by that method.

The playoffs also offer another opportunity for punters to take advantage of some unique Champions betting markets as they are straight knock out games offering a different stance on a regular league season.

Championship facts

In the current 2018/19 Championship season, nineteen of the twenty-four teams playing has had a stint in the Premier League since 1992 which just goes to highlight the competitive nature of the division and how important it is to keep up to date with our latest Championship predictions which you can read via our portal.

It is also because of this wealth of domestic talent that the English Championship is actually the seventh richest division in Europe and second most attended second tier league in the world just behind the German second division, Bundesliga 2.

Its popularity means the Champions odds come thick and fast with plenty of selection as average attendances often exceed 20,000 a week.

Former Premier League champions Blackburn Rovers are plying their trade in the Championship during this 2018/19 season as well as two-time European Champions Nottingham Forest, and one-time European Champions Aston Villa but it is Barnsley who hold perhaps something of an unwanted but consistent record in the league.

That is because the club known as the Tykes have spent more seasons than any other club in England’s second tier making them something of a predictable call when contesting the Championship betting markets (even though they are currently in League One this season).

However, it is Ipswich Town who have currently been residing in the division for the longest successive period.

Sixteen years now Ipswich have been competing in the Championship ever since they were relegated at the end of the 01/02 Premier League season making for some intriguing Championship predictions when it comes to the Tractor Boys.

Ever since the official inception of the coined phrase Championship in 2004, one man still holds the record for being the highest ever Championship top scorer for a single season.

The now Brighton striker Glenn Murray struck 30 league goals for the Crystal Palace during the 2012/13 Championship season.

That is a record the current crop of Championship players will be eager to exceed with varied goal scorer Championship odds proving a popular market in the division.

This season there has been excitement in abundance with a number of high-profile appointments such as former Argentina and Lazio manager Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United and former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard making his managerial debut at Derby County.

This undoubtedly goes to highlight the appeal of the league on a global scale and with it the vast array of Championship betting markets offered by bookmakers.

Marcelo Bielsa’s impact at Leeds United has been an impressive one with the club performing better than they have done for a number of seasons and are worthy of keeping an eye on as the season progresses with their Championship odds no doubt offering plenty of opportunity.

West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Swansea City were the three sides relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season and all three’s Championship predictions make them strong favourites for a swift return but due to the nature of the league, nothing is certain.

Wolverhampton Wanderers were crowned Champions last season and thus earned themselves promotion to the Premier League with Cardiff City finishing the campaign in second place and also earning promotion which highlights how much the Championship is a UK league as it houses sides from Wales as well as England.

Fulham and Aston Villa contested the playoff final at Wembley stadium which occurs each May and it was Fulham who somewhat upset the Championship odds to win the match and a return to the Premier League.

This season’s Championship betting is one full of opportunity at every turn only enhanced further at Amazing.Bet.
