Commonly known as The Premier League, the EPL is an English professional league for men’s association football clubs. At the top of the English football league system and the country’s primary football competition, the Premier League is the most-watched football league in the world.
While 47 clubs have competed since the inception of the EPL, only six have won the title: Manchester United (13), Chelsea (4) Arsenal (3), Manchester City (2), Blackburn Rovers and Leicester City (1). The current champions are Leicester City, who won the title for 2015-16.
There are 20 teams in the EPL and each club plays the others twice, for a total of 38 games in a season that runs from August to May. This means 380 matches in a season – most of them played on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and some others on weekday evenings. The referees are some of the best in the world and absolutely fascinating to watch.
