About The Richest Game In Football


The Championship promotion play-offs, more often than not, provide a thrilling climax to a long and arduous season in England's second tier. With the final league table set in stone after 46 matches - eight more than are played in the Premier League - the top two teams in the division are promoted to top flight, whilst those finishing from 3rd to 6th book a place in the play-off semi-finals. 

A top six finish is an achievement in itself in one of the toughest leagues around but can also be a cruel way to end the campaign if the team in question should fail to book that third and final promotion spot for the cash rich English Premier League.

The play-off semi-finals are played over two legs, home and away for the clubs involved, as the sides look to book a place in the decider at Wembley at the end of May.

The play-off final is a winner takes all affair in front of 90,000 fans at England's national stadium both in terms of promotion to the top tier and the financial rewards that entails.

In 2016, Hull City's victory over Sheffield Wednesday guaranteed a record £170m minimum promotion prize, which was an increase of £40m on the figure estimated for the previous year and owing largely to the rise in Premier League TV rights.

That figure was estimated to increase overall to a staggering £290m on avoiding relegation in the season after being promoted. Those figures also included projected income from increased commercial activity and gate receipts, but we are talking phenomenal money nonetheless.

As recently as 2006, the value of going up was approximately £40m but that number has been dwarfed due to increased attendances, global TV exposure and the willingness of commercial partners around the world to to pay to associate themselves with Premier League football. The EPL is undoubtedly the strongest league globally in terms of revenue generation, which only adds to the appeal of the do-or-die Championship play-off final.
