The Football League Championship is England’s second highest football division. It was founded in 2004 and was known as the Football League Championship. Teams get promoted to England’s Premier League while those who take the fall find themselves in England’s League One.

Twenty-four teams take part in the league, which is considered to be the richest non-top flight football division in the world and the sixth richest division in Europe. The final match of the promotion playoff is dubbed as the richest game in football primarily because of the financial benefits the winning club will receive apart from having a spot in the Premier League. The Football League Championship started in 2004, prior to that it was known as the Football League First Division and before the Premier League was created in 1994 it was Division 2.
