The Championship is the top tier of the English football league and second being the BPL. The name the Championship was introduced in 2004. When the Premier League was first introduced in 1992 this league was referred to as the Football League First Division, and before this it has been known as Division Two for a hundred years since 1892.
Despite being the second tier of football England the Championship is the 7th richest football league in the world, and the richest of non top-flight leagues. Three Championship teams are promoted to the top-flight each season, the top two secure automatic promotion with a play-off deciding the third team. In turn the bottom three EPL clubs are relegated into the Championship. In total the league runs with 24 teams each season.
Much of the revenue into the top-tier of the English football league is supplied from broadcasting rights. Games are broadcast on both television and radio stations in the UK, with local radio channels providing coverage of matches within their specified region. Countries across the globe also broadcast fixtures, boosting interest in the league as well as providing substantial revenue.
In most recent history Aston Villa is the most high profile club to be relegated into the Championship. They had played every season of top-flight football since 1992, but a run of poor-form has dropped them into the second tier alongside Newcastle United and Norwich City.
Villa and Newcastle are both well supported in their local regions, and have large well-developed stadiums in comparison to other English football league clubs. These clubs presence in the league is sure to manifest in serious competition and increased interest both in England and throughout the world.
