Nottingham Forest is set to play Huddersfield in the 2022 EFL Championship Final on Monday the 30th of May, but this is more than just a football game.
Often called ‘the most lucrative match in football’, the winner will earn promotion to the Premier League and with it the riches that come.
Although the prize money for winning the match is small, promotion is worth at least £130m in the first season, with further riches coming should the team survive in the Premier League. Even if they do get relegated immediately, the parachute payments typically ensure teams are able to still survive.
