The 2019 EFL Championship play-off Final was a football match which was played on 27 May 2019 at Wembley Stadium, London between Aston Villa and Derby County. The winner earned promotion to the Premier League for the 2019–20 season. The top two teams of the 2018–19 EFL Championship season gained automatic promotion, whilst the teams placed between third and sixth place in the league table played two initial matches in a series of play-offs, and the top two teams of the play-offs played for the final place for the 2019–20 Premier League.[2] Winning the game is estimated to be worth £170m to the successful team.[1]
