The Championship teams shown on Sky Sports the most in 2023/24: West Brom compared to Sunderland, Leeds and rivals

Staggering figures show a huge disparity in the number of televised games all 24 Championship sides had throughout 2023/24 season.

Sky Sports is the only place that you will be able to watch Championship and EFL next season after the league agreed to a new five-year deal worth £895m.

Gone are the days of iFollow or WBA TV in the United Kingdom with the broadcaster holding exclusive rights to Championship and Carabao Cup matches. Football is being shaken up with there being more games than ever shown next season following the proposed launch of the Sky Sports + app which will become active in August.

Sky Sports say that all clubs will be shown at least 20 times this season and they aim to provide more notice to supporters who can plan their travel and accommodation all the way up to the third round of the FA Cup. One of the proposed slots is streaming numerous games at once on a Saturday with a 12.30 pm kick-off. All opening league games of the 2024/25 season will be shown as well.

Leeds United versus Southampton on Sunday (May 26) is the final match of the 2023/24 EFL season, and both of those clubs have featured heavily on television this year. The Whites have the biggest level of support in the Championship on the road and are second to Sunderland for home games, and for those who have been unable to attend, they've been able to watch them on television.

West Brom featured prominently on Sky Sports too with television schedulers keen to see how Carlos Corberan's side fared. Ultimately, TV bosses want to draw the biggest audiences and so they will choose the biggest clubs, but they're also trying to tell a story.

From the least to the most, here's how many games all 24 teams have had on Sky Sports throughout 2023/24 so far, according to the figures which come from Plymouth Argyle forum Plymouth Argyle Supporters on The Internet (PASOTI).
