Manchester United will return to Craven Cottage next season, after Fulham's joined English football's elite with a dramatic play-off victory on Tuesday.
Fulham secured an immediate return to the top-flight after beating Brentford 2-1 after extra-time.
The two West London clubs needed an extra 30 minutes to settle the Wembley finale, after a goalless 90 minutes at the near-empty stadium.
It means United will return to Craven Cottage in the 2020/21 Premier League season. United's recent record against Fulham is exemplary - unbeaten in their last 11 meetings, having won nine and drawn two.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping to match his fine previous visit to the ground in United's managerial hotseat - as his charges won 3-0 in the English capital. Paul Pogba scored twice, in a victory which characterised the midfielder's resurgence under Solskjaer. Anthony Martial was also on the scoresheet in an easy Red Devils win.
Fulham join West Bromwich Albion and United's fierce rivals Leeds in winning promotion to the top tier of English football.
