English Premier League

premier-league-logo-first

The English Premier League, commonly known as the premiership is relatively new compared to other leagues, as its history begins in 1992 and the first games were played in August of the same year. England’s First Division began its history in 1888, but, with time, it lagged way behind the other leagues, which prompted the English Federation to implement some changes.

Since the League was formed in 1992, it had 22 clubs and a lot of games to be played between the clubs; so, at FIFA’s insistence that all leagues diminish the number of games, Premier League ended up with just 20 teams. It shares the same European qualification standards, the same rules about the clubs doomed to relegation, and, while some use head-to-head results to separate the teams with the same number of points, the Premier League uses goal difference. An exception to the European qualification system was made in 2005 right after Liverpool won the Champions League, but didn’t qualify for any of the places that led to it the next season. So UEFA made an exception and gave Liverpool the right to take part in the competition, thus, giving England 5 teams in Champions League.
