The English Premier League is one of the most popular leagues on the planet. Live Premier League football has dominated the sports schedules for almost two decades and with the likes of Torres, Rooney and Drogba having replaced such world renowned names Cantona, Zola and Ronaldo, its appeal is almost universal.
Since its inception, only four clubs have ever won the English Premier League title. Manchester United claimed the first in 1992 and have dominated ever since with 11 titles. Chelsea’s success in 2009/10 gave them their third Premier League crown, matching London rivals Arsenal. Blackburn Rovers inspirational season in 1994/5 gave them their first and so far only Premier League title.
Live Premier League football features teams with rich histories such as Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and following their promotion in the summer Newcastle United. Watching live Premier League games through your own pc couldn’t be easier. Live Sports Network offers you the chance to see your favourites in action week in-week out through access to coverage of all Premiership games.
Champions Chelsea begin this campaign on a high following their Community Shield win over bitter rivals Manchester United. Despite a poor World Cup showing by several of their stars, and the departure of others such as Michael Ballack and Joe Cole, the club led by Carlo Ancelotti will hold high hopes of retaining their title in addition to progressing in the UEFA Champions League, having almost tasted the ultimate success a couple of year ago.
Manchester United come off the back of what was, for them, a disappointing campaign with only the Carling Cup in their trophy cabinet. Wayne Rooney will again be key and will seek to put his own performance in South Africa behind him. The ever-green Ryan Giggs continues to inspire and with Sir Alex Ferguson showing no signs of contemplating retirement any time soon, their desire to regain ‘their’ title should be evident from the off.
Liverpool, under new manager Roy Hodgson, Arsenal still with the wily Arsene Wenger at the helm and Harry Redknapp’s Tottenham Hotspur will most likely be the nearest challengers as will moneybags Manchester City whose spending power appears to have no limits.
Newcastle United return to the big time only a year after being relegated and West Bromwich Albion will hope to buck their recent trend of promotion/relegation in successive seasons. Surprise play-off winners Blackpool return to the top league of English football for the first time in nearly half a century and will look to emulate the likes of Fulham and Stoke City who have returned to the pinnacle of English league football and stayed there.
Brief History Of The Premiership
The Premier League was established when the 22 teams of the then-English First Division formed their own league with the first fixtures to be played in the 1992-1993 season. The purpose of breaking away from the established Football League was commercial; top division clubs wanted to have a bigger share of sponsorship money. It therefore comes as no surprise that the Premiership always had a sponsor since 1993. To date, it had been sponsored by Carling (now the sponsor of the League Cup), by Barclaycard, and now by its current sponsor Barclays.
In 1995, the 22-member league was scaled down to have only 20 members and resisted further pressure from FIFA to reduce their numbers (18 being the desired number of clubs). In 2007, the league dropped FA from its name and became known as plain Premier League and currently, the Barclays Premier League.
Premiership Structure And Privileges
Each Premier League club plays 38 games playing every other team home and away. The clubs with the most points becomes the Premier League Champion and qualifies automatically for the following season’s Champions League. The next three clubs also have a shot at Champions League football, either by direct qualification or via the qualifying rounds. The sixth-placed club wins a place in the Europa League. Depending on the winners of the League and FA Cup’s, the club placed seventh may also receive a place in the Europa League.
