Sky Bet Championship 2018 - 2019

efl championshipSky Bet have extended their sponsorship of the EFL until 2023-24 and as part of the deal they have agreed to fund responsible gambling sessions for first-team players and club staff at all EFL clubs starting this season. Follow-up counselling and ongoing support will be made available to players that request it. While this is in itself not an unworthy initiative, it smacks of tokenism given the massive profits being generated by online gambling businesses and their unhealthy relationship with professional football in the UK.

New sleeve patches, first seen in last season's play-off finals, have been introduced that carry the GambleAware message.

Bolton narrowly avoided relegation last term. Macron again furnish their kit, which stays firmly with tradition for the first choice set. The stand up collar is a nice touch but I don't like the curious red insert in the hem of the shorts.

Derby have a perfectly good first choice kit with some neat black flashes at the collar and the latest Umbro trim on the sleeves. It's just a shame that they have fallen under the spell of an online casino as shirt sponsor.

The latest first choice shirt is not so different from last season's candy stripes. The sleeves, however, are black while the stripes are arranged in a different order and in pairs.

It's always good to see Ipswich wearing white sleeves, a reminder of the colours adopted when they turned professional almost 90 years ago and won the Football League title in 1962. Personally I don't like to see red on their strips but our Ipswich correspondent is a fan. Orange was last used as an alternative colour in 2014 and proved very popular so here it is again, in the latest Condivo template.

There is barely any change to North End's first choice strip, just a new sponsor and collar design. Second choice is now a deeper shade of yellow while green is retained for the third strip but it looks as if this will be worn with the gold change shorts and socks. That'll save a bob or two.

Rotherham bounced straight back into the Championship via last season's play-offs. Their new first strip is as smart as they come, as is the alternative. Blue and black stripes last appeared in 2003-04. The third strip reflects a colour scheme from 1989-90 and has had a mixed reception according to our Millers correspondent.

Stoke's supporters need cheering up after their team dropped out of the Premier League last season and these new strips should help. The first shirt is very traditonal down to the width of the stripes and having white in the centre. Blue applications provide a little extra interest. The purple alternative features a textured halved design.
