The Premier League is the top tier of English club football, comprising of teams from England and Wales. There are twenty teams in the league,  who play each other twice in each season, once at home and once away.

The league was founded in 1992, as First Division clubs opted to break away from the F.A and Football League. Allowing the Premier League to negotiate their own broadcast and sponsorship agreements, a move intended to make English teams competitive against their European counterparts.
