EFL is the second – highest overall in the English Football League after the premier league. The league is contested by 24 clubs. Each season, the two top-finishing teams in the championship are automatically
promoted to the premier league.
The teams that finish the season in 3rd to 6th place enter a playoff tournament, with the winner also gaining promotion to the premier league. The three lowest – finishing teams in the championship are relegated to league one.
The acquisition of the EFL TV rights means that Nigerians and other subscribers across Sub-Saharan Africa will enjoy all matches from the EFL in high definition quality on TStv.
