Sesonger
2019/20 2021/22

EFL Championship 2020–2021 begynte 11. september 2020. De lagene som rykket ned fra Premier League 2019/20 var Bournemouth, Norwich og Watford, og de som rykket opp fra League One 2019/20 var Coventry, Rotherham United og Wycombe Wanderers.

Norwich vant serien, som i 2019. Det er femte gang Norwich blir mester på nivå to. Watford rykket også direkte rett opp igjen. Brentford, Swansea, Barnsley og Bournemouth spiller kvalifisering om den tredje opprykksplassen. I den andre enden av tabellen rykket Rotherham United rett ned, sammen med Sheffield Wednesday som rykket ned som en følge av et poengtrekk de ble idømt før sesongen. Wycombe Wanderers endte på nedrykksplass da sesongen ble avsluttet, men EFL etterforsket Derby County for mulige brudd på ligaens økonomiske reglement. 2. juli 2021 kunngjorde EFL at Derby ikke ville bli ilagt poengtrekk.[1]
