The UK Premier Football League
The Premier League is England’s premier domestic football league, a top-flight competition that serves as the crowning glory of English football. The Premier League is one of the most-watched leagues in the world, with levels of viewership, sponsorship, and prestige that no other league can touch. The teams in this league are recognised all over the world and are as second-nature to football fans as national teams like Brazil, Argentina, Germany, and England. The Premier League’s prestige has built steadily over the years. The league was founded back in 1992, taking over from the old First Division, which was founded nearly 100 years earlier in 1888. Premier League games are piped into over 643 million homes around the world, with an estimated audience of more than 4.5 billion. A single Premier League season runs from August to May. There are 20 teams in the competition and each of these teams play each other twice, accounting for a total of 38 games each and 380 games in total. There is a lot of joy, disappointment, excitement, drama, and anticipation throughout these 380 games and that’s why the English Premier League is said to be the best football league in the world.
Best Premier League Teams and Players
When thinking about football betting, think about the early days of the Premier League who were dominated by Manchester United, who were managed by Sir Alex Ferguson and had players like David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, and Paul Scholes on their books. They won five out of the first six seasons, with their win streak interrupted in the third season thanks to a surprise win from Blackburn Rovers—a win that their top scorer, Alan Shearer, played a big part in. Manchester United remained dominant throughout the 90s, finishing a close second to Arsenal in 1997/98, before winning the next three titles. In 2012/13, the 20th anniversary of the Premier League, they claimed their 13th title. The majority of the first 12 seasons of the Premier League were split between Arsenal and Manchester United, but since then Chelsea and Manchester City have both won the title multiple times and we also witnessed a shock when Leicester City won in 2015/16. Some of the league’s biggest-ever players include Alan Shearer, who holds the title for the most Premier League goals, and Thierry Henry, who was one of its best players in the early 2000s. The league has helped many greats earn their legendary status, including Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Didier Drogba, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Harry Kane, and Luis Suarez.
