The EFL Championship 2018/19 (English Football League Championship), also known as the Sky Bet Championship due to sponsorship reasons or simply, the Championship, is the highest division of the English Football League (EFL) and second-highest after the Premier League, in the overall English football league system. The 2018/19 edition of the EFL Championship is the third edition of the tournament under it’s current name, i.e. Sky Bet Championship, and the 27th edition of the tournament since it’s inception. In this article, we will look at the complete EFL Championship schedule 2018, along with the 24 teams that are taking part in the football championship, the EFL championship table for the 2018/19 season and the EFL Championship table 2017/18.

Every year in the English football Championship or EFL Championship, 24 teams take part in a competition and the top finishing teams are promoted to the Premier League, while the teams finishing at the rock-bottom are relegated to the League One, i.e. the third tier of English football.

The top two teams and the winner of the Football Championship play-offs are promoted to the Premier League, while the bottom three teams are relegated to Football League One. The Football Championship or EFL Championship play-offs are held in a knock-out style, for the teams finishing on the EFL championship table in third to sixth place.

The EFL championship table 2017/18 or the Sky Bet Championship table 2017/18 had seen Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and Cardiff City qualify to the Premier League, and the three teams that were relegated to the Football League One were; Barnsley, Burton and Sunderland. As evident from the rankings in the EFL championship table 2017/18, unpredictability and competition is the name of this game, and we can expect the same when the English Football Championship 2018/19 begins on August 4 (IST).
