Fulham and Bournemouth clinched automatic promotion, as Fulham won the Championship title and the Cherries finish second, two points behind.

On Sunday, Nottingham Forest were 1-0 victors over Huddersfield Town, as Levi Colwill scored the game’s only goal, in the wrong goal.

Promotion to the Premier League is estimated to be worth over $200 million for each club with parachute payments (funds distributed by PL to relegated clubs to help soften the blow of the financial losses) over the next three seasons if they’re relegated straight back to the second-tier.

That will help keep the clubs among the big boys in the Championship, at the very least, and gives them huge financial security.
