2021-22 EFL Championship: Location-map, with League History chart
This is a new template, which features a standard location-map, plus a chart which shows the League History of all the clubs in the division. As well as showing the locations and crests of the 24 Championship clubs this season, the main map includes the 58 Unitary authorities of England, and shows the major Urban Areas of England and Wales.

The League History chart lists the total seasons that each club has played in the 1st level [Premier League], the 2nd level [EFL Championship], the 3rd level [EFL League One], and the 4th level [EFL League Two]. Alongside each column there is also listed the most recent season each club has played in each level.

The League History chart also shows the total League seasons of each club (in the dark-blue column). (Total League seasons is: all Football League seasons plus all Premier League seasons that a club has played.) 2021-22 is the 123rd season of League football in England: 1888-89 to 1914-15; 1919-20 to 1938-39; 1947-48 to 2021-22. There were 12 founding members of the Football League in 1888-89, and seeing how one of those clubs is defunct (Accrington FC), and seeing how one of those clubs has been relegated out of the Football League (Notts County), that means there are only 10 clubs in England that have played all 123 seasons of League football. Five of those clubs play in the Championship this season…Blackburn Rovers, Derby County, Preston North End, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion.

    The three clubs promoted to the 2nd division (EFL Championship) in 2021…Hull City, Peterborough United, Blackpool.
