Following the promotions and relegations of last season, the 19/20 season looks to be even more competitive than the last. England’s top tiers of powerchair football are ready to get into action – so let’s get to know who’s involved.



Teams that moved up:

Manchester United PFC

An almost faultless Championship campaign saw Manchester United PFC sail into the Premiership this season. Scoring 88 goals and conceding only 5 last season, the side will be keen to keep up this impressive performance now they are in the top tier.

AFC Bournemouth Warriors

A turn-around that saw them 10th in the 17/18 Championship season to automatic promotion last season, AFC Bournemouth Warriors exceeded all expectations and will be looking to kick-start their debut Premiership campaign with the kind of quality that will keep them in the league.

Full league list:

Manchester United PFC

AFC Bournemouth Warriors

West Bromwich Albion

Bright & Hove Albion PFC

WBA Throstles

Nottingham PFC

Sale United PFC

Sevenoaks PFC

Northern Thunder

Aspire PFC

St George’s Knights

Villa Rockets


Teams that moved down into the Championship:

Leeds Chariots PFC

Experience and a can-do attitude make the Chariots title contenders, and no doubt they will be seeking a quick return to the top division.

Middlesbrough PFC

Lots of transfer activity for the club could see the side get straight back into the Premiership, who will be looking for a positive start to their campaign.

Teams that secured Championship places:

Newcastle United PFC

One of the teams to look out for this season, the Magpies won each of their three fixtures in the Championship play-offs to grasp hold of their precious National League status.

Teesside PFC

Another team to look out for, and another team from North East England. Teesside boasts a talented roster of previous Premiership talent and will likely feel all eyes on them as they make their Championship debut.

Full league list:

Middlesbrough PFC

Newcastle United PFC

WBA Dudley

Teesside PFC

Nottingham Forest PFC

Electric Eels

Cheltenham SW All-Stars

Leeds Chariots PFC
