2006–07 Football League Championship

The 2006–07 Football League Championship (known as the Coca-Cola Championship for sponsorship reasons) was the third season of the league under its current title and fifteenth season under its current league division format.

The Football League is contested through three Divisions. The top divisions of these is the League Championship. The winner and the runner up of the League Championship will be automatically promoted to the Premiership and they will be joined by the winner of the League Championship playoff. The bottom three teams in the Championship will be relegated to the second division, League One.

Sunderland finished top of the league with 88 points, closely followed by Birmingham City who had 86 points.[3] Derby County were promoted through the play-offs. Southend United, Luton Town and Leeds United were relegated.
