There is one spot left in the 2020/21 English Premier League season. Brentford and Fulham will battle it out in a winner-takes-all clash at Wembley. It’s known as “the richest game in football” due to the enormous financial benefits from being in England’s top flight. Promoted teams earn an estimated £170 million from broadcast rights and other payments.
A late-season collapse cost Brentford a shot at automatic promotion. Those spots were taken by Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion. Now the Bees have one more chance to reach the highest level in the English game, a drought that stretches back to 1946/47.
Fellow Londoners Fulham enjoyed a long stretch in the EPL, from the 2001/02 season all the way through to 2013/14. They have had one more season in the top flight since then in 2018/19 and are hoping to bounce back at the first attempt.
This huge clash kicks off at 2:45pm EDT on Tuesday August 4 at Wembley Stadium in London.

Here we go, a one-off match that offers the type of financial benefits most clubs can only dream about. One moment of magic could be enough for either side to enjoy a whole new era. So who wins it?
These teams met twice this season and the Bees prevailed on both occasions. A solitary goal at home back in December was enough, while two late strikes gave Thomas Frank’s side the points at Fulham on 20 June. The teams did finish level on 81 points for the season, although Brentford’s goal difference (+42) was significantly higher than Fulham’s +16.
We wouldn’t blame Brentford fans for feeling they have let a chance slip through their fingers yet again. But in our eyes, the team that cheekily calls itself “the Barcelona of the lower leagues” is finally ready to cast that moniker aside. Extra-time and penalties wouldn’t be a shock, but we think Brentford will hold their nerves enough to claim this cherished prize.
