Championship Line Up Complete For 2018/19 Campaign

27 May 2018

Following the conclusion of the Sky Bet League One Play-Off final, PNE now know all 23 teams they will face during the 2018/19 campaign as the Lilywhites look to build on an impressive seventh place finish.

Rotherham United were the winners at Wembley with a 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town in extra time, meaning they will join League One winners Wigan Athletic and runners up Blackburn Rovers in the Championship next season.

All three teams have made an immediate return to the Championship following relegation from the second tier at the end of the 2016/17 season. 

The other three teams to complete the division are West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Swansea City who were relegated from the Premier League earlier this month.

There will be no trip to Craven Cottage for Alex Neil's side next season after Fulham's win over Aston Villa on Saturday at Wembley meant that Slavisa Jokanovic's side join Wolverhampton Wanderers and Cardiff City in the Premier League next season.

Three other teams who won't be battling it out in the Championship next season are Sunderland, Burton Albion and Barnsley who were relegated to League One at the end of the campaign. 

The Championship fixtures will be announced on Thursday 21st June at 9am, when North End will find out their schedule for the 2018/19 season.

Preston North End's fixtures will be announced on the club's website and across social media so make sure you are following us across all our platforms to be one of the first to find out when the key fixtures will be played.
