The Premier League is the most important football league of England, often referred to as the English Premier League or the EPL. The competition comprehends 20 teams, and although football clubs from Gales are allowed to play, those from Scotland cannot take part in the tournament.

The premier league was established almost three decade ago, on February 1992. All 20 teams face each other as long as the competition is active, with one of the matches taking place at their home stadium. Therefore, the EPL calendar has 38 matches overall.

Since its foundation in 1992, it has been considered as one of the most important football leagues worldwide for numerous reasons. Not only do they have a considerable amount of teams facing each other on the field, but also manage a substantial budget. Additionally, there’s a lot of competitiveness and rivalry between the teams.

Over the years, teams like the Manchester City or Chelsea have been hugely remarkable. We can also put under this category other teams, like the Manchester United and Tottenham.

How is the 2020-21 season playing out so far?

The current champion of the league is the Liverpool. This team won their first championship for the first time.
