Cardiff City was promoted to the English Premier League after a 0-0 draw at home to Charlton Athletic guaranteed the Welsh side a top-two finish in the Championship (second division).

The principality now has two representatives in the Premier League with Cardiff joining Swansea City in the top flight. — Reuters
