About EFL Championship Tickets 2023/24

The second tier of English football has a rich history, albeit one with numerous names over recent years.

As the Football League Second Division, the competition ran from 1892 to 1992 and from 1992 to 2004; as the divisions in the English Football League started to settle and adjust to the formation of the Premier League, the league was known as the Football League First Division.

In its current format and title, the EFL Championship has run since 2004-05, when Sunderland were victorious, with Wigan Athletic finishing second and West Ham coming up as Play-off winners.

The nature of the league, and the fiercely competitive nature that thrives within it, means that some of the best teams in English football have, at one time or another, had to battle their way through in order to get back to where they may well feel they belong.

The likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham, and Newcastle United have all won the title, notably absences from such a list are Arsenal and Everton, who haven't ever had to compete at this level.

Barnsley have spent the most seasons in the division, while Birmingham City have the longest current run in the EFL Championship. The Tykes were the first to play 3000 games in the second tier and the first to win 1000 games.

EFL Championship Attendance

In the 2022/23 season, a grand total of 10,351,379 EFL Championship tickets were sold, which goes some way to show just how popular the league is. In comparison with Europe's big leagues, that places the English second tier as one of the most watched in the world.

The sheer size of the audience goes some way to show just how popular football is in England, and every event attracts a great deal of attention, meaning interest in EFL Championship tickets is always high, especially when the big guns are in action.

EFL Championship - How it Works

The EFL Championship is the top tier of the English Football League (EFL), which itself used to comprise the top division, what was previously known as Division One (but is now known as the Premier League and has been since the rebranding back in 1992).

There are 24 teams that take part in the EFL Championship, and they play each other twice, meaning each team has 46 games to contend with, and that's not even taking into account the possibility of play-offs.

The top two sides secure automatic promotion; the next four teams take part in the play-offs. The three lowest teams are relegated to EFL League One.

EFL Championship Sponsors

The current EFL Championship sponsors are Sky Bet; hence the league usually being referred to as the Sky Bet Championship.

Top Teams & The 2023-2024 EFL Championship Preview

The 2023/24 season promises to be as exciting as ever and will see huge crowds in attendance, not least because of the size of teams that have been relegated from the Premier League.

Let's take a closer look at the teams that are likely to be fighting for the title and the all-important promotion places.

Teams to Watch Out For

Leicester City

The 2015/16 Premier League winners find themselves back in the second tier after the failed effort by Dean Smith, who came in to replace Brendan Rodgers in charge in April. Enzo Maresca has been drafted in, and it's likely a number of big names are on their way out of Leicester City, with James Maddison and Youri Tielemans having already departed the King Power. The Midlands side are still considered one of the favourites to get promoted.

Leeds United

No less than four managers were used by Leeds United last season, and yet the Elland Road side still went down. The club's loyal and large following will now be key to their hopes of an immediate return to the top flight, as will the appointment of a strong managerial candidate and the retaining of the club's best players.

Southampton

This is the Saints' first season in the second tier since 2012, and they've brought in Russell Martin to help get them back in the Premier League. One imagines their hope of promotion rests, to some extent, on whether they can retain one-club-man James Ward-Prowse, which seems unlikely.

Norwich City

Last season the Canaries were one of the favourites to get back into the Premier League, but the decision to sack Dean Smith in late December, when the team were fifth, really backfired, and they ended up in 13th place. David Wagner is now in charge and will hope to see a marked improvement on his first six months in charge.

Middlesbrough

Michael Carrick did an outstanding job after taking over at the Riverside last October and drove the team to the play-offs, and the former Manchester United man will look to build on the successes of last season as the north-east giants seek a return to the Premier League, which they last played in back in 2016-17.

West Bromwich Albion

Another team that used multiple managers last season without success, the Baggies, will be looking to Carlos Corberan to deliver the goods. The Hawthorns outfit certainly have enough about them to mount a push for promotion.

Watford

Last season the Hornets sacked Rob Edwards by late September and then watched as the young manager took Luton Town to the Premier League. Valerien Ismael is now in charge at Vicarage Road, and the club is already looking to bring in a number of new talents.

Sunderland

Alex Neil was surprisingly sacked by Sunderland last August, even though the Scot had taken the Stadium of Light team back into the EFL Championship; fortunately, his replacement Tony Mowbray did a wonderful job and almost completed back-to-back promotions, and the hugely popular club should be there or thereabouts this time around.

The Road to the Premier League - EFL Championship Play-Offs

The promised land that is the Premier League is within sight, and teams battling away across the lengthy season know just how crucial securing a seat at the top table of English football can be, so much so that the EFL Championship play-off final is considered the most financially rewarding game in football and it's a game that rarely disappoints.

With the top two sides in the division having secured the automatic path to the Premier League, and with their players now basking on the beach and considering their meteoric rise to the biggest sports league on the planet, the teams sat in third, fourth, fifth and sixth go head to head in two-legged semi-finals before meeting for the final at Wembley Stadium.

As for the value of the game itself, ahead of the 2023 clash between Luton Town and Coventry City, it was estimated that the victorious team could earn somewhere between £135m and £265m from such a win, with that sum depending on if they can hold on and avoid immediate relegation, which is a common occurrence.
