About The Premier League
The Premier League is an annual football competition, the highest league division in England. The league runs from mid-August until mid-May each year. A total of 20 teams participate in the league, all but one of which are English (Swansea City are a Welsh team, which have chosen to play in the English football league system). The league is sponsored by Barclays Bank, although it was formerly known as the FA Carling Premier League, after its British beer sponsor.
The Premier League generates millions of pounds of each of its clubs through television revenue and marketing each year, and is one of the most illustrious and financially rewarding leagues in the world. The league also has a rather high percentage of managerial sackings, and its clubs also spend more on players on average in the transfer windows, than any other league.

The history of the Premier League
The Premier League began back in 1992, when the founding members decided to structure a new league, which would takes its place above the then highest division (now known as the Championship). 22 teams joined the league, although this was later reduced to just 20. Since then, the amount of money flowing into the league has grown exponentially, making it the richest football league competition in the world.
During the early years of the league, Manchester United were the dominant force in English football, winning successive titles. By the 2000s, a “top four” became established in the league, consisting of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United (even though, Liverpool are yet to win the Premier League). By 2015, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City have thrust themselves into the mix, meaning there are now considered six top teams in the league.
Manchester United have won the most championships with 20 in all (13 in the Premier League), whilst Liverpool are second on 18, despite never having won the Premier League. Of Arsenal’s 13 league titles, only 3 are during the Premier League era, as opposed to Chelsea’s 4 league titles (3 of which have come during the Premier League era). Manchester City (twice) and Blackburn Rovers (once) have also won the Premier League. The current defending champions are Manchester City.
The league season
The Premier League begins in mid-August, after the traditional curtain raiser that is the Community Shield. Matches are mainly played on Saturdays and Sundays, although some Monday night football matches and mid-week games are frequently scheduled. Each team players the others twice (once home and away), to make up a total of 38 games each.
This season, Arsenal, Aston Villa, Burnley, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Everton, Hull City, Leicester City, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers, Southampton, Stoke City, Sunderland, Swansea City, Tottenham Hotspur, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United are playing in the division.
The biggest matches (and best to bet on with Bitcoins) are the Manchester Derby (when Manchester United and Manchester City meet), the London Derby (held between Arsenal and Chelsea), the Merseyside Derby (held between Everton and Liverpool), or whenever Manchester United and Liverpool square off against one another.
European qualification and relegation
At the end of the season, the top four teams will qualify for the UEFA Champions League, whilst the fifth and sixth placed teams qualify for the UEFA Europa League. At the bottom of the table, the teams finishing eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth are automatically relegated to the division below (The Championship).
Their places are taken by the first and second placed teams in that division. Teams finishing third to sixth will then compete in a knock-out play-off competition to determine which team will take the final Premier League spot for the following season. There is a vast financial reward for teams progressing up to the Premier League.
