Not only is this the most-watched secondary league in the world but it’s also the seventh richest overall, with the average match attendance being around 17000. The Championship is comprised of 24 teams and has two automatic promotion spots and three automatic relegation spots. The third promotion place is contested by the teams that finish between third and sixth place, with the Play-off Final being held at Wembley Stadium.

In the end Norwich City secured promotion through the Play-off Final and joined automatically promoted Watford and Bournemouth.
