Coventry City vs. Luton Town live stream: Championship Playoff Final, how to watch online, time, news, odds

The richest game in sport is coming to Wembley as Luton Town and Coventry City meet Saturday with a spot in the Premier League on the line. Neither team has been in the top flight since 2001 but one drought will end and it’s one that could be worth at least £170 million according to Deloitte. 

The duo have followed quite the path to Wembley defeating Sunderland and Middlesbrough and will look to join Burnley and Sheffield United in the top flight. 

“Should the winner avoid immediate relegation from the Premier League, there could be a financial uplift in excess of £290 million. However, only a small number of newly promoted clubs have survived their first season back in the Premier League, and the winner will be focused on maintaining their new position in the highest revenue-generating football league in the world,” assistant director in Deloitte’s Sports Business Group, Zai Udwadia. “This weekend’s prize will play a crucial role in helping to recruit playing talent, as well as investing in infrastructure and fan experience to give the promoted side the greatest chance of remaining amongst the best teams in England.”

Udwadia makes a good point about what the team has to gain, especially following a season where all three promoted teams will remain in the Premier League. Since 2008, the winner of the playoff has been fairing well in the Premier League with eight of the last 15 seasons which will give these teams hope despite a lot of work needing to be done to prepare.

Coventry City: Mark Robins’ team had the weird distinction of playing Middlesbrough three times in a row. They were tense matches with two ending in draws but when it mattered, Coventry were able to emerge with a victory away thanks to a goal from Gustavo Hamer. They’ll need more than two shots on target to best Luton in the final but with a defense that can contain potent attacks, they’ll have a chance to push the match to penalties.

CBS Sports has a soccer podcast covering everything you need to know about European game’s top competitions and storylines. Make sure to give House of Champions a follow for coverage of the biggest games, stories, transfer news with Fabrizio Romano, and everything else going on in the world’s most popular sport.

Luton Town: Set plays were the name of the game when Luton’s size helped them overpower Sunderland, but experience could be what helps them this time around. Being in the pressure cooker of the Championship Playoffs last season gives them a platform to build on this season, although if the match goes to penalties, it’s anyone’s game.


As with most Championship Playoff Finals, this will be another one that makes it to extra time but Luton’s experience will push them through to the Premier League.  Pick: Coventry City 0, Luton Town 1 (Added extra time)
