rights deals secured by the Premiership from domestic and overseas broadcasters.

What this means is the teams contesting Championship play-off final are

more than double the revenue the promoted clubs will have received from playing
in the Championship.

This is a 50% increase on the £40m Premiership clubs are receiving this
season in the last year of a three-year TV rights deal.

Seven clubs are fighting for the final play off berth. These are Derby
County, West Bromwich Albion, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton, Stoke City,
Preston North End and Colchester United.

The final will take place on 28 May.
