The Prince will be anointed as His Majesty King Charles III as he takes over the role from Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September last year.

The Championship matches will now take place on May 8.

This may be strange for some fans as the games will kick off at the normal time of 3pm but on a Monday.

The day will be a bank holiday as part of the national celebration for the coronation.

League One and League Two have also been affected by the coronation.

League One’s final fixtures will kick off at 12pm on May 7, while League Two will play its last games on May 8 with 12.30pm kick off times.
