Palace boss Holloway: £110M showdown biggest game in football

Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway says today's Wembley showdown with Watford is the biggest game in football.

He insists the £110m at stake makes today's Championship play-off final the biggest game in the world. Holloway will guide Crystal Palace into the Premier League if they beat Watford at Wembley.

Ollie said: "It is absolutely the biggest game in the world. It's the size of the prize. The last time I fought for this it was £90m, now it's more.

"That's why people are buying Championship clubs and trying to do it. They're throwing money at it, they want success.

"Look at Cardiff. They've had seven goes, so well done to them this year. But if they hadn't made it, how much would they have owed?"
