Premier League

-English professional league for association football.
-At the top of the English football league system, it is the country's primary football competition.
-Has 20 clubs in it, operates on a system of promotion and relegation with The Football League.
-Seasons run from August to May, with teams playing 38 matches, each totalling 380 matches in the season. Most of the games are played on Saturdays and Sundays, with only a few games during the weekday evenings.
-From 1993-2007, known as the Premiership. Now it is sponsored by Barclay's Bank and now known as the Barclay's Premier League.

-Despite success in the 1970s and early 1980s, the late 80s were an ultimate low point for English football because stadiums were crumbling, supporters had poor facilities, vandalism and general trouble was high and English clubs were banned from European competitions for 5 years following the events at Heysel in 1985.
-In 1990, England was successful at reaching the semi-finals in the 1990 FIFA World Cup.
