The HYROX World Championships are the pinnacle of each HYROX season, where the best athletes from all around the world come together to battle it out for the highly sought after title of the Age Group World Champion. Boss Carlos Corberan inspired a third-place finish in the table and a narrow 2-1 aggregate victory over play-off dark horses Luton to book their place under the arch. The Championship play-off final is approaching with Huddersfield and Nottingham Forest set to duel at Wembley for a place in the Premier League. In 2004, the remaining three divisions of the EFL were again rebranded, this time to what we know today – the EFL Championship (2), League One (3), and League Two (4). As of 2023, 68 of the these clubs are in England, and the other four are in Wales.

Following an easing of restrictions in May 2021, the play-offs were able to take place in front of crowds of up to 20% of a stadium’s capacity. Each season, the two top-finishing teams in the Championship are automatically promoted to the Premier League. The teams that finish the season in 3rd to 6th place enter a playoff tournament, with the winner also gaining promotion to the Premier League.

In many sport leagues, a playoff system is used to determine a winner. Teams compete in a regular season of varying formats and a limited number of teams qualify for playoffs. Although this system is mostly identified with the United States and Canada, it is frequently found in other North American countries, and is also standard in sports influenced by North America (e.g. basketball, baseball, ice hockey) as well as most football codes other than soccer. The playoffs (known in some countries, notably Australia, as the „finals series”) are a tournament where teams play head-to-head in knockout competition. The championship is often considered the final of the playoffs (e.g., Super Bowl, Stanley Cup Finals, NBA Finals, World Series, etc.). The playoff system can be seen as a hybrid between the league system and tournament system, where a league is used to determine qualifiers for the tournament.

The HYROX Open championships are compromised of two highly competitive races in Europe and the United States. These unique races give our athletes the opportunity to become the European/US Champion of their Age Group and represent their country whilst doing so. Athletes can qualify at any of the HYROX global races of that season by achieving one of the top placings in their respective age group and division across any of the HYROX global races of that season, with the number of qualifying spots available at each race dependent on the total number of participants. Sky Sports customers can live stream the matches via the Sky Go app on a variety of devices including most smartphones and tablets as part of their subscription.

But in the early 1990s, a major shakeup occurred that would change the face of club football forever. The 22 First Divison clubs resigned from the Football League, in 1992, creating the Premier League.


Promotion and relegation remained the same between the top division and the second (re-named the Football League First Division). In 1995 the EPL contracted to 20 clubs, relegating an extra two teams that season. After World War I, the Third Division was created (initially split into individual north and south leagues). A single, nationwide third tier was crafted and a Fourth Division was added.
