Welcome to the Championship!

5 May 2015

Following the final round of regular Football League fixtures over the weekend, Bristol City and MK Dons won promotion from the third tier – and the Owls would like to congratulate the duo and welcome them both to the Championship.

The Robins finished top of the pile in League One having dominated the division.

Indeed, having signed off with a resounding 8-2 triumph over Walsall, Steve Cotterill’s men concluded the campaign just one point shy of a century.

Runners-up were the Dons, who sealed the second automatic slot in dramatic circumstances on Saturday.

MK brushed aside Yeovil 5-1 and needed Preston to slip up at relegation-threatened Colchester.

And during a crucial clash at The Weston Homes Community Stadium, the hosts scored an 82nd winner to secure survival – and send the Lilywhites into the play-offs.

Wednesday played Bristol City most recently in the 2012/13 campaign, while MK last locked league horns with the Owls the previous term.

Season Tickets for 2015/16 at Hillsborough are now back on sale for the second phase.
