ESPN+ to provide extensive coverage of thrilling EFL Championship promotion race

ESPN+ have lined up all key promotion deciding fixtures in their schedule

The English Football League (EFL) Championship promotion race is reaching fever pitch, with most teams having just six games left. As the competition intensifies, sports fans and betting enthusiasts in the United States are in for a treat as ESPN+ will be covering many of these crucial matches. The focus is on three teams vying for two automatic promotion spots and several others hoping to secure a place in the promotion playoffs.

At present, Norwich City holds sixth place in the Championship table - the last spot available for playoff contention. However, with 40 games under their belt this season, many trailing teams have played one less match.

Four teams are within six points of Norwich City: Coventry City, Preston North End and Hull City among them. If these clubs can capitalize on their games in hand by securing victories, it would further fuel an already heated promotion race.
