    The EFL Championship is the second tier of English football and consists of  24 teams who play 46 games home and away. The sheer number of matches in the Championship make for a gruelling season, with a big squad needed if promotion is to be realised.

    The season is played from August through to May with the top 2 being automatically promoted to the lucrative Premier League.

    The teams finishing in 3rd to 6th place each season meet in the Championship play-offs with the winner being promoted to the Premier League.

    In the play-offs, the third-placed team plays against the sixth-placed team and the fourth-placed team plays against the fifth-placed team in two-legged semi-finals.

    Currently the three teams bottom of the table after those 46 games being relegated. These teams are then replaced by the top 3 teams from EFL League Division 1.

    Betting Tips on outright markets and individual matches are placed throughout the season, the games come thick and fast, so punters are never far away from an EFL Championship betting opportunity.
