The Championship play-offs are among the most exciting - and most lucrative - fixtures in the football world.

With four teams involved and a place in the Premier League at stake, they make for some of the most competitive and intriguing games of the seasons.

Ahead of the 2021-22 edition of the Championship play-offs, GOAL brings you everything you need to know, including the teams involved, fixture dates, how to watch live on TV and more.

What are the Championship play-offs?

The Championship play-offs in England are a series of knockout games used to determine the third and final team to be promoted to the Premier League.

The play-off fixtures are played after the conclusion of the regular Championship season and feature the teams which finish third, fourth, fifth and sixth in the league.

A merit system is used to allocate the semi-final fixtures, with the third-placed team facing off against the sixth-placed team and the team in fourth place playing the team in fifth place.

Traditionally, the Championship play-off semi-finals are two-legged affairs, with the winners advancing to the final.

Which teams have qualified for the Championship play-offs in 2022?

The identities of the teams which have qualified for the 2022 Championship play-offs have not yet been confirmed, but a picture is beginning to emerge, with a number of contenders firmly in the mix.
