Fulham vs Aston Villa Live Stream: Watch the Championship Playoff final online
Fulham and Aston Villa have a date at Wembley Stadium this afternoon, where they’ll battle it out for a place in the Premier League. Our guide reveals all you need to know to watch Fulham vs Aston Villa online, including full live stream details and the kick-off time.
The Cottagers, who were relegated from the top flight in 2014, came agonisingly close to an automatic promotion spot, missing out to Cardiff by just two points. The Villans came fourth, finishing five points behind Fulham, and the West Londoners would feel bitterly disappointed if the Birmingham side went up instead of them today.
And of course, it’s not just a place amongst the elites of the English game (and, you know, the likes of Huddersfield, Brighton, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Bournemouth and Burnley) that’s up for grabs today. Today’s winners will also receive at least £160 million, according to Deloitte, which could rise to almost £300 million if they manage to stay in the Premier League for at least a season.
Both sides are widely considered to “belong” in the Prem and there’s a number of players from both teams who many expect to see in the top flight regardless of what happens today. We’re looking at you in particular, Ryan Sessegnon, Jack Grealish and Tom Cairney.
Villa beat Fulham when they met in the league last October, thanks to goals from John Terry and Albert Adomah, but Fulham were triumphant in February, with Sessegnon and Floyd Ayite on the scoresheet that day.
Whichever side you’re on, it’s a hell of an occasion to look forward to (and a worth precursor to tonight’s Champions League final). Streaming the game could barely be easier. Here’s how to do it.
