Bristol Rovers will take their automatic promotion bid down to the wire.
Rovers need to better Northampton’s result on the final day, when they face National League-bound Scunthorpe United, or if Northampton do win, Rovers will need to win and make up the five-goal difference.
We take a look below....
What is the prize money?
The EFL doesn’t award any additional prize money to promoted teams.
Whether you win League Two, win the playoffs or finish bottom, there is no difference in the money recieved.
League Two and League One payments
League Two payments for each team are understood to be £472,000 per season from the EFL, plus £430,000 in solidarity payments from the Premier League.
In League One, teams receive £677,000 per season from the EFL and £645,000 from the Premier League.
League One reward
Combining the two payments, clubs in League Two receive £902,000 per season, while League One clubs receive £1.32million per season.
That represents a £420,000 gain for promoted clubs, despite the fact there is no upfront prize money.
Rovers are hoping to benefit from that and, of course, there are some additional gains such as increased ticket and merchandise sales, which vary by club.
