Which teams have been promoted to play in the 2022/23 season?

Nottingham Forest, Fulham and Bournemouth are the three sides who’ve been promoted to the Premier League for the 2022/23 campaign.

Fulham sealed their return to the top tier after finishing top of the Championship, racking up 90 points and scoring 106 goals as they bounced straight back up to the Premier League after being relegated in 2020/21.

Star man Alexander Mitrovic score a stunning 43 goals as the Cottagers cruised their way to the title, and the Serbian will look to finally make a big impact in the top tier after struggling to do so in the past for both Fulham and Newcastle United.

Bournemouth finished two points behind Fulham, but also secured automatic promotion to the Premier League the season after going down.

The Cherries, now managed by Scott Parker, previously enjoyed a five-year stint in the top tier, as they repeatedly defied the odds under now-Newcastle manager Eddie Howe.

Forest went through a nerve-wracking play-off campaign to book their return to the big time for the first time in 23 years, defeating Sheffield United in the semi-finals, before beating Huddersfield Town at Wembley stadium to seal the deal.

Among their star players is Brennan Johnson, who scored for Wales in their 3-2 loss to the Netherlands earlier this week.
