With pre-season campaigns at Brentford, QPR and Fulham firmly underway there is a hope amongst all fans that they can clinch promotion.
There will only be three sets of supporters in the Championship who will be looking forward to facing off against the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.
But what does it take to win promotion to the Premier League and, for sides newly back in the division, what is needed to survive?
To make things easier, GetWestLondon has looked back at all the recent years when the second tier has had a 24-team alignment.
For title winners, we have taken the runners' up points tally and added one point to it as it would be the minimum amount of points required to win the league and then rounded the average up to the higher whole number.
We have replicated this with the third placed side, seventh placed team and the final relegation place.
Those places have been taken for the 1994/95 season when one side went up automatically and the fifth placed side took the last play-off place to retain consistency.
Below is a summary of what is required to win the league, clinch promotion, earn a play-off spot and book a place in the 2018/19 Championship season.
To win the league
In the last four years, teams have needed 90 points or more to lift the trophy but it hasn't always been the case.
Certainly in the 2012/13 season, the total points required was just 80. Looking back over the past 29 seasons, when the league returned to a 24-team format, the average points required to win the league is 88.
To gain automatic promotion
On average, the points required over the past 29 seasons has been 83, although in recent years the figure has been higher.
Brighton, when they missed out on goal difference to Middlesbrough, had 89 points.
However, in other seasons, 75 has been enough to secure promotion as what happened in the 1993/94 campaign.
To finish in the play-offs
When Wolves finished in seventh place with 78 points, that total would have been enough to finish in the top six in every other season.
They were tied with fifth placed Brentford. In other years, such as 2005/06, 68 points would have been enough to book a spot in the end of season showdown.
On average, though, 73 points has been needed to claim sixth place.
Blackburn can consider themselves unfortunate they were relegated last season as 51 points was good enough to stay up in the majority of reason years.
The most was in the 2012/13 season when Peterborough were relegated with 54 points and they have never earned promotion back to the Championship since.
It can go the other way with just 41 points needed to survive in the 2015/16 campaign.
On average, 48 points has been needed to survive.
