English Premier League (EPL)
The Premier League is the top tier of England’s football pyramid, with 20 teams battling it out for the honour of being crowned English champions.
Home to some of the most famous clubs, players, managers and stadiums in world football, the Premier League is the most-watched league on the planet with one billion homes watching the action in 188 countries.
The league takes place between August and May and involves the teams playing each other home and away across the season, a total of 380 matches.
Three points are awarded for a win, one point for a draw and none for a defeat, with the team with the most points at the end of the season winning the Premier League title.
The teams that finish in the bottom three of the league table at the end of the campaign are relegated to the Championship, the second tier of English football.
Those teams are replaced by three clubs promoted from the Championship; the sides that finish in first and second place and the third via the end-of-season playoffs.
