Brentford earned a promotion to the Premier League for the first time in club history following their 2-0 win over Swansea City.
Brentford, who lost to Fulham in the playoffs last season, will earn around $240 million due to the promotion.
"We were the better side even when they had 11 men and they didn't create any chances. We fully deserved it. I'm in the Premier League with the best bunch of boys," said Ivan Toney, who scored a goal.
The club are owned by Matthew Benham, a former professional gambler known for using statistics to rebuild the side.
Toney is an example of the "Moneyball" strategy, arriving from Peterborough for $7 million to replace Ollie Watkins, whom Aston Villa bought for $46 million.
