The end of the 21-22 Premier League season will be remembered as one of the most nail-biting finales in the British football league.
Manchester City were ultimately crowned the victors of the Premier League, claiming their 8th title in the tournament. But whilst the top English league was dominating the headlines, the League One sides were fighting it out in an effort to earn their promotion to the bigger leagues.
Fulham is no stranger to the Premier League, playing in the Championship for just 1 year before achieving their promotion.
The side has earned its place in the Premier League with an automatic promotion thanks to its first-place finish in the 21/22 season. Despite a string of unconvincing performances at the end of the season, the team managed to score a total of 90 points, beating second-place Bournemouth by just 2 points to be crowned the champions.
Although they have previously played in the Premier League, Fulham has never earned the first place trophy with an all-time best finish position of 7th in the 2008/2009 season. With their re-entry to the league, fans will be eager to see just how the squad perform against the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea in the 22-23 season.
The second team automatically promoted to the Premier League is Bournemouth, finishing just 2 points behind Fulham and a full six ahead of third-place Huddersfield.
Bournemouth is another team with just a short stint in the Championship and had previously spent 5 years at the top level of English football before being relegated in 2020. This 5 year period was the first time that Bournemouth had ever reached the Premier League and under Scott Parker, the side is looking for a second long stretch at the top level.
Nottingham Forest (playoff winners)
Nottingham Forest may have only finished fourth in the Championship, but a string of playoffs falling in their favour makes them the third team making their way to the Premier League this season.
The team managed a 1-0 victory against favourites Huddersfield following an own goal from the centre back Levi Colwell, loaned to Huddersfield from Chelsea. Their successful Championship means that Nottingham Forest will head to the Premier League for the first time in 23 years.
Previously, Nottingham Forest had managed to keep their place in the Premier League between 1977/78 and 1998/99. With such a rich history within the top league, fans of the side will be eager for the 22-23 season to form the start of another long stint in the Premier League.
