CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS IN OTHER COMPETITIONS
Second flight teams also take part in both the FA cup and the EFL cup. A Championship team's odds of winning the FA cup are better than you might expect, so much so that between 1973 and 1980 four cups were lifted from then second division teams, with the last being won by West Ham. Wigan won the FA cup in 2013, becoming the first team to lift the trophy and be relegated from the Premier League in the same season. this resulted in them competing in the Championship and in the Europa League the following season, quite a feat. The EFL cup has a different tournament structure, but a Championship team only needs to win 3 matches in order to be in the semi-finals, making it not unlikely for a second-tier club to win the competition.
