Championship relegation 2018/2019


Clubs that could be relegated from the Championship 2018/19

Championship is the second tier of English football. Every season the top two clubs from the table directly get promoted to the Premier League and another club gets promoted through play-offs. On the other hand, the bottom three clubs from the Championship gets relegated to the League 1, which is the third tier in English football. The relegated teams are replaced in the Championship by three clubs that get promotion from the League 1.

In the season 2017/18, Barnsley, Burton, and Sunderland were relegated from the Championship and will be playing in the League 1 next season. Now, which clubs could get relegated in next season's Championship?

Rotherham is highly expected to get demoted from the Championship in 2018/19 season. They finished 4th in the League 1 last season and got promotion via play-off. They beat Shrewsbury in the final of the play-off to go through to the Championship. But no one really believes that they will be able to make an impact next season and will be relegated to the League 1 again.

Bolton is also expected to face relegation in the Championship 2018/19 season. They had a miserable season in the Championship 2017/18 as they finished on the 21st position on the table. They were saved by only two points from getting relegated last season. But they might not get lucky again next season and finally face relegation.

Ipswich Town
Ipswich Town is expected to get relegated in the 2018/19 Championship season even though they finished high above the relegation zone last season. However, the club has signed a new manager Paul Hurst for the upcoming season but still is considered as one of the favorites to get demoted. 

Queens Park Rangers finished 15 points above relegation last season but are expected to go down next season. They have appointed a new manager, Steve McClaren after sacking Ian Holloway. The club must hold on to Luke Freeman and sign new talents. If they don’t, they could very well get relegated.

Reading finished 20th in the 2017/18 Championship season. They finished with only 3 points above relegation but they are expected to not get lucky again next season. 2018/19 season could be their last season in the Championship as they drop down to league 1.
