The 2010–11 Football League Championship (known as the npower Championship for sponsorship reasons) was the seventh season of the league under its current name and nineteenth season under its current league division format. It started on 6 August 2010 and concluded on 7 May 2011, with the resultant play-offs concluding with the final on 30 May.

Queens Park Rangers secured the Championship title on 30 April 2011, ending their 15-year hiatus from the Premier League, [3] while Norwich City secured the second automatic promotion spot two days later, ending a six-year absence from the top flight. Swansea City won the play-off final to take the final promotion place.

Preston North End, Scunthorpe United and Sheffield United were relegated to League One.

Rule changes

Off-field rules

  • New financial reporting rules see transfer embargoes imposed on those clubs which fail to lodge their accounts with the Football League, at the same time they are required by Companies House.
  • The Football League's fit and proper person test was renamed the Director's Test to ensure continuity with other football bodies.

Sponsorship changes

After Coca-Cola's sponsorship contract expired and was not renewed, Npower signed a three-year contract to become the Football League's official partner. The Coca-Cola Player of the Month and Coca-Cola Manager of the Month awards are therefore now known as the Npower Player of the Month and the Npower Manager of the Month award respectively. [4]
