Luton Town are in the Premier League side after beating Coventry in the playoff final in a penalty shoot-out in which Fankaty Dabo missed the decisive penalty.

That penalty was the only one missed after a match in which Luton were the better side, had the better chances and even had a goal disallowed in the 117th minute for handball.

The match, and the title, as it is celebrated in England, is valued at around 195 million euros. This is the amount that the winner would pocket between television rights and the compensation they would receive in the event of relegation in the first year.

The scare of the match came from captain Tom Lockyer in the first half after he collapsed whilst performing a defensive move when he was not in possession of the ball. He was rushed to hospital but appears to be out of danger, although he was kept under observation.

Luton will be the Premier League’s quirkiest team with the old Kenilworth Road stadium, founded in 1905 and with a capacity of 10,356, the smallest capacity stadium in the Premier League era. It is smaller than the 11,307 of Dean Court, home of Bournemouth, although imminent expansion work is set to start.
