How many teams get promoted/relegated in the English Football Championship?
The top two teams are automatically promoted, and a third is promoted through a four-team playoff. The four teams that will make the play-offs are those who finish third to sixth in the regular season standings. The bottom three teams are relegated to League One.
2021/22 England Championship Teams
The 24 teams playing in the EFL Championship this year are:
- Birmingham City
- Blackburn Rovers
- Bristol City
- Cardiff City
- Coventry City
- Derby County
- Hull City
- Luton Town
- Nottingham Forest
- Preston North End
- Sheffield United
- Stoke City

2021/22 Championship Promotion Contenders
Last season's relegated temas from Premier League - Fulham (11/2), West Brom (13/2) and Sheffield Utd (9/1) - are the best teams on paper and serious contenders to return to the top flight. Anyway, they are all entering the new campaign with new managers and could struggle in early stages but at the end of the season they will be in the mix to finish as the top two teams and seal automatic promotion to the top flight.
Bournemouth (9/1) are also being backed to bounce back from play-off disappointment under newly-appointed boss Scott Parker.
Cardiff City (16/1), Nottingham Forest (16/1) and Middlesbrough (17/1) all look interesting value away from the obvious frontrunners. They have good chance to finish among the four teams who will make the play-offs.
2021/22 Championship Relegation Candidates
The promoted clubs from League One - Hull City, Peterborough and Blackpool - are obviously the main candidates to be relegated. Huddersfield Town and Bristol City both need a strong summer transfer campaign to avoid a highly disappointing season. Derby County survived by the skin of their teeth last term and are another candidate to struggle. Wayne Rooney's team could also get points deduction as the club is locked in a legal wrangle with the English Football League.
