Championship Playoff Final: Crystal Palace vs Watford: Open Thread

crystal palace watford Championship Playoff Final: Crystal Palace vs Watford: Open Thread

Today sees the richest match in soccer kicking off at 10am ET between Crystal Palace and Watford, to decide which team will be promoted to the Premier League. For the winner, they’ll generate a total increase in revenue of £60 million next year. Combined with parachute payments, the revenue increases to £120 million. The loser will suffer heartache and depression, and will play in the Championship again next season.

If you live in the United States, the match is being shown live on beIN SPORT beginning at 9:55am ET.

Even if you’re not a Crystal Palace or Watford supporter, this is one of the must-watch matches of the season with so much on the line at Wembley.

The match also has the added-bonus of being played on a national holiday in the States (Memorial Day) as well as a Bank Holiday Monday in the United Kingdom. So sit back, and get ready for an emotional two hours of soccer.

Before, during or after today’s match, join the conversation in the comments section below with soccer fans from around the world.

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!
