Who has been promoted?

Fulham were the first side to secure their promotion to the Premier League for the 2022/23 season, as Marco Silva's side wrapped up the Championship title with games to spare.

Their promotion charge was aided by the incredible goalscoring record of Aleksandr Mitrovic, who broke the record for the most goals scored in a single, 46-game Championship season when he netted his 42nd and 43rd of the campaign in their 7-0 rout of Luton Town.

They will be joined in the Premier League by AFC Bournemouth, who have secured their immediate return to the top-flight with a runners up finish in the Championship.

Scott Parker's side ensured that they would avoid any potential playoff heartbreak with a 1-0 victory over 3rd placed Nottingham Forest on Tuesday evening.
