The following is a list of clubs who have played in the Football League Championship at any time since its formation in 2004 to the current season. Football League Championship teams playing in the 2012–13 Football League Championship season are indicated in bold. If the longest spell is the current spell, this is indicated in bold, and if the highest finish is that of the most recent season, this is also in bold.
