EFL League One (England)

The English Football League One (EFL League One) is the third highest division of English football, consisting of 24 teams. The team to earn the highest points over the 46 match season is the Champion and earns promotion to the EFL Championship, along with the second place team and the Play-Off winner (play-off competed for by 3rd-6th place teams), with the lowest 4 clubs relegated to the English Football League Two division.

The 2019 – 2020 champions were Coventry City, winning promotion back to the EFL Championship for the first time since 2012, along with Rotherham United and Wycombe after the league was originally suspended from March before being curtailed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The final table was calculated by a points-per-game method with the play-offs being played behind closed doors. The season was finished with the three relegated sides being Bolton Wanderers, Southend United and Tranmere Rovers (there was no fourth team due to Bury being expelled from the league).
