Championship Line Up Complete

1 June 2017

Two Preston North End supporters will be representing the club along side PNE boss Simon Grayson on the Football to Amsterdam bike ride.

The line up for the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship season is now complete after Mondays' Play-Off final.
Reading lost out on penalties to Huddersfield Town at Wembley after the sides couldn't be separated over 120 minutes, with the Terriers promoted to the Premier League.

That means Jaap Stam's Reading will have to battle it out in the Championship once again next season after an impressive campaign.

Newcomers to the division this season include Middlesbrough and Hull City, who were relegated from the Premier League after winning promotion in 2016. Joining them after ending the season in the bottom three is Sunderland, the first time the north east side have been in the second tier since winning the division in the 2006/07 season.

There's another derby to look forward to as Bolton Wanderers bounced back at the first attempt, winning automatic promotion from League One after their relegation at the end of last season. They are joined by League One champions Sheffield United and Play-Off winners Millwall in the Championship for the 2017/18 campaign.

The three promoted teams replace Rotherham United, Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers who will be battling in League One.

The full line up for the 2017/18 season is as follows:

Aston Villa
Barnsley
Birmingham City
Bolton Wanderers
Brentford
