Sky Bet EFL: Championship Trophy presentation

7 May 2017

Earlier this week the EFL confirmed plans for this today's Sky Bet Championship winners’ Trophy presentation.

Both Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion can be crowned champions with the Magpies welcoming Barnsley to St James’ Park, whilst Chris Hughton’s Seagulls visit Aston Villa.
 
In the event the title goes the way of Brighton, who currently sit a point ahead of their North East rivals, then the presentation will take place in front of the visiting away fans at Villa Park.
 
This decision follows a recent review of EFL policy to ensure that wherever possible, clubs can be presented with silverware even if they are playing away from home.
 
The EFL’s preference will always be to stage trophy presentations at the home stadium of the title-winning club.
 
However, when there is a title-decider on the final day of the season, the celebrations can now also take place at the away team’s ground subject to safety and security measures being satisfied.
