What to know about the playoffs

The Championship playoffs are a mini-knockout tournament that takes place after the end of the regular season to determine which team takes the final promotion place to the Premier League. While the top two teams after 46 games automatically earn promotion to the top table of English football, the teams that finish third, fourth, fifth, and sixth all have a chance of joining. They contest two two-legged semifinals and the winners of those contest meet in the winner-takes-all final. Third place is paired with sixth place, while fourth is paired with fifth for the semifinals. The 2024 Championship playoff final is scheduled for Sunday, May 26, and it will be played at Wembley Stadium.
