Fulham Earn Promotion to the Premier League

We now know all of the teams that will be competing in the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.

Fulham managed to defeat Brentford in the EFL Championship Playoffs Final last Tuesday. The final score was Fulham 2 and Brentford 1. All three goals were scored in extra time.

After playing to a nil-nil draw after the first 90 minutes, the match required extra time.

Joe Bryan opened the scoring in the 105th minute with a howling free-kick from 40 yards out. It must have confused the goalkeeper that he booted it short side rather than attempt a cross into the box.

Bryan completed his brace by scoring his second goal of the match in the 117th minute.

That essentially sealed up Brentford’s fate. Henrik Dalsgaard pulled Brentford back within one goal in the 124th minute, but it was too little, too late for the Bees.

Brentford have failed to earn promotion in all nine of their playoff attempts.

Fulham last earned promotion during the 2017-18 campaign. They won the final against Aston Villa (1-0), but they were relegated in their first season up, finishing with 26 points in 38 matches during the 2018/19 Premier League campaign. They’ll look to avoid relegation when the 2020/21 season begins.

What Other Teams Earned Promotion to the Premier League for 2020/21?

Leeds United and West Brom will join Fulham in the Premier League next season.

Leeds United finished 1st on the table in the EFL Championship with 93 points (28-9-9), while West Brom secured a 2nd place on the table with 83 points (22-17-7).

West Brom haven’t played in the Premier League since the 2017/18 campaign. West Brom earned a promotion into the Premier League during the 2009/10 campaign. They were able to maintain their position in the top league for eight seasons before being relegated.

Leeds United haven’t tasted the Premier League since 2003/04. They even dropped down to the Football League for three seasons, but they’ve been improving the past two seasons.

When Does the 2020/21 Premier League Season Begin?

Start Date: Saturday, September 12th 2020

End Date: Sunday, May 16th 2021

The 2020/21 Premier League campaign was supposed to begin on August 8th 2020, but because this past season finished late because of COVID-19, the start date for next season was pushed back a bit.

If there’s no postponement this season, the league will end on May 16th 2021.
