Championship glory for Hull City or Sheffield Wednesday

Hull City will play Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship play-off final in front of a sold out crowd at Wembley Stadium.


Hull and Sheffield are the last two teams standing after surviving the cut-throat stages of the Championship play-off’s.  The final attracts interest from millions of people all over the world. Attendance figures haven’t dropped below 80,000 in three years.



Hull City are looking for a quick return to the Premier League, after they were relegated last season finishing in 18th place.

The Tigers were ruthless in the semi-final first leg away from home, smashing Derby County 3-0, and held on in the 2nd leg after a late blitz by Derby to win 3-2 on aggregate.

Sheffield Wednesday have an opportunity to return to the Premier League after a long 16 years. Their stubbornness and never say die attitude was enough to survive a late onslaught of chances from third placed side Brighton & Hove Albion in the 2nd leg.

The winner of the play-off final will receive a hefty pay-check of $A335.6 million. Not bad at all.

Our prediction:

Hull City 2-2 Sheffield Wednesday (Sheffield to win on penalties)
