HISTORY AND FORMAT

Although the foundation of the Premier League in 1992 marked a watershed moment in the development of English top-flight football and the beginning of its global proliferation, its roots go all the way back to 1888, making it the oldest league in the world. This mix of long tradition with the cream of international managers and players in what remains a relatively unpredictable and fast-paced league has won over a global audience, with billions regularly tuning in to coverage of its matches in every corner of the world.

The Premier League is currently ranked the second best in Europe behind La Liga in terms of UEFA coefficient. The top four teams in the Premier League qualify for the Champions League, whilst the bottom three are automatically relegated to the Championship.

Historically, the most successful team in the top division are Manchester United with 20 titles, although they have fallen on hard times of late in their search for a successor to the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson. Last season’s title was won by Liverpool for the first time in 30 years, meaning they are now within one title of catching up. The League Cup was taken by Manchester City for a seventh time, whilst the FA Cup trophy rescued a dreadful season in the league for Arsenal, as they claimed their 14th title. The record goal getter in the English top flight is Jimmy Greaves with 357 goals.
