Hearts win Championship and secure top flight return

12th April 2021

Heart of Midlothian Football Club have won the 2020/21 SPFL Championship.

The Jambos have secured an instant return to the Premiership following last season’s demotion from the top flight.

Robbie Neilson’s side were rampant against Alloa Athletic last night, putting six past the Wasps without reply to open up a 14-point lead at the top of the table.

Results elsewhere today means that the men in maroon cannot be caught and Premiership football will return to Tynecastle Park in season 2021/22.
