If you haven't bet online before, then you should read one of the many articles on, where you will find information on the bookmakers, their bonuses and promotions, and betting in general.



Norwich City is the first team we know of that will surely get promoted to the Premier League. They haven't played in the first tier of English football since the 1992/1993 season when they qualified for the UEFA Cup first round by finishing in third place. In the EFL Championship, they have four titles (five after this season is over) and one runner-up.


Watford will qualify for the playoffs, but as of now, there is still a chance they won't make it to automatic promotion. That depends on other teams and their performance, not only on the Hornets' form. The highest point in history for the club is when they finished in second place during the 1982/1983 season. In recent years they have mostly dominated the EFL Championship tier of English football.

Clubs That Qualify for the Championship Playoffs


Swansea is the team that has the best shot at stealing automatic promotion from Watford because currently, they are at third place in the Championship table. They might have had a losing streak a while back, but they seem to be in the form now. The club reached the Premier League in 2011, but during the 2017/2018 season got relegated back to the Championship.


Brentford's highest accomplishment was finishing fifth in the Premier League back in 1935/1936. Currently, they are in the fourth position and will most likely get to the playoffs, but it would be tough to get through the other teams for Premier League promotion.


The last time Bournemouth was at the top of the Championship table was in 2014/2015 and they only recently got back to the Championship during the 2019/2020 season. They have won their last five Championship games and are in perfect form, for now. We can only wait and see if they will continue with the winning streak.


Barnsley's latest loss against Coventry was only one of the recent Championship highlights. They stand at the border of promotion to the playoffs but may not get to it if they continue to lose games. After them, Reading is the closest team who can take their sixth position in the games that they have left.

Final Conclusion

For now, certain facts about the first and second tier of English football are that Norwich gets an automatic promotion and Sheffield United will get relegated to the EFL Championship next season. We will have to wait a little more to find out if Watford will also get promoted or if any of the other teams, we mentioned might take their place.
