Blackpool into Championship play-off final

12:36 pm on 10 May 2012

Blackpool have beaten Birmingham City to reach the English Championship football play-off final.

The second leg finished 2-2 at Birmingham's home ground St Andrew's, with Blackpool winning 3-2 on aggregate.

They'll now play West Ham, who also went down last year, with the winner promoted back to the Premiership.

The May 19th final at Wembley is known as the 'richest game in football' because the financial rewards for promotion are enormous - a place in the Premier League estimated to be worth over $180 million.
