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 best in Europe on 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 year, Manchester City fought off a late charge by Liverpool to claim their eighth title thanks to a dramatic final day comeback. The Reds had to console themselves with their eighth FA Cup and record 9th League Cup, which were achieved through two penalty shootout wins over Chelsea. The record goal getter in the English top flight is Jimmy Greaves with 357 goals.
