Teams are ranked by total points, then goal difference , and then goals scored. If still equal, teams are deemed to occupy the same position. If there is a tie for the championship, for relegation, or for qualification to other competitions, a play-off match at a neutral venue decides rank.
The three lowest placed teams in the Premier League are relegated to the Championship, and the top two teams from the Championship promoted to the Premier League,  with an additional team promoted after a series of play-offs involving the third, fourth, fifth and sixth placed clubs.
The following 20 clubs are competing in the Premier League during the current —19 season. Founding member of the Premier League b: Never been relegated from Premier League c: One of the original 12 Football League teams d: Club based in Wales.
The following clubs are not competing in the Premier League during the —19 season, but competed in the Premier League for at least one season.
One of the original 12 Football League teams c: In , a Welsh club participated in the Premier League for the first time after Swansea City gained promotion.
Participation in the Premier League by some Scottish or Irish clubs has sometimes been discussed, but without result.
The idea came closest to reality in , when Wimbledon received Premier League approval to relocate to Dublin, Ireland , but the move was blocked by the Football Association of Ireland.
If this means six Premier League teams qualify, then the fourth-placed team in the Premier League instead plays in the UEFA Europa League , as any single nation is limited to a maximum of 5 teams.
The number of places allocated to English clubs in UEFA competitions is dependent upon the position a country holds in the UEFA country coefficients , which are calculated based upon the performance of teams in UEFA competitions in the previous five years.
Currently the ranking of England and de facto the Premier League is 2nd behind Spain. An exception to the usual European qualification system happened in , after Liverpool won the Champions League the year before, but did not finish in a Champions League qualification place in the Premier League that season.
However, for those leagues with four entrants in the Champions League, this meant that if the Champions League winner finished outside the top four in its domestic league, it would qualify at the expense of the fourth-placed team in the league.
At that time, no association could have more than four entrants in the Champions League. From to , the Premier League had title sponsorship rights sold to two companies, which were Carling brewery and Barclays Bank PLC ; Barclays was the most recent title sponsor, having sponsored the Premier League from until until , the title sponsorship was held through its Barclaycard brand before shifting to its main banking brand in The FA announced on 4 June that it would not pursue any further title sponsorship deals for the Premier League, arguing that they wanted to build a "clean" brand for the competition more in line with those of major U.
As well as sponsorship for the league itself, the Premier League has a number of official partners and suppliers. The Premier League includes some of the richest football clubs in the world.
Premier League clubs agreed in principle in December , to radical new cost controls. The two proposals consist of a break-even rule and a cap on the amount clubs can increase their wage bill by each season.
With the new television deals on the horizon, momentum has been growing to find ways of preventing the majority of the cash going straight to players and agents.
Television has played a major role in the history of the Premier League. At the time pay television was an almost untested proposition in the UK market, as was charging fans to watch live televised football.
The Premier League sells its television rights on a collective basis. This is in contrast to some other European Leagues, including La Liga, in which each club sells its rights individually, leading to a much higher share of the total income going to the top few clubs.
The income from overseas rights is divided equally between the twenty clubs. It sold the rights itself on a territory-by-territory basis.
This occurred following an insistence by the European Commission that exclusive rights should not be sold to one television company.
The TV rights agreement between the Premier League and Sky has faced accusations of being a cartel, and a number of court cases have arisen as a result.
The Premier League is particularly popular in Asia, where it is the most widely distributed sports programme. In China, the broadcast rights were awarded to Super Sports in a six-year agreement that began in the —14 season.
There has been an increasing gulf between the Premier League and the Football League. Since its split with the Football League , many established clubs in the Premier League have managed to distance themselves from their counterparts in lower leagues.
Owing in large part to the disparity in revenue from television rights between the leagues,  many newly promoted teams have found it difficult to avoid relegation in their first season in the Premier League.
In every season except —02 , —12 and —18, at least one Premier League newcomer has been relegated back to the Football League.
In —98 , all three promoted clubs were relegated at the end of the season. The Premier League distributes a portion of its television revenue to clubs that are relegated from the league in the form of "parachute payments".
For some clubs who have failed to win immediate promotion back to the Premier League, financial problems, including in some cases administration or even liquidation have followed.
Further relegations down the footballing ladder have ensued for several clubs unable to cope with the gap. As of the —18 season, Premier League football has been played in 58 stadiums since the formation of the division.
As a result, all stadiums in the Premier League are all-seater. The stadiums for the —18 season show a large disparity in capacity. For example, Wembley Stadium , the temporary home of Tottenham Hotspur, has a capacity of 90, while Dean Court , the home of Bournemouth , has a capacity of 11, Stadium attendances are a significant source of regular income for Premier League clubs.
Managers in the Premier League are involved in the day-to-day running of the team, including the training, team selection and player acquisition.
Their influence varies from club-to-club and is related to the ownership of the club and the relationship of the manager with fans.
Several caretaker managers have gone on to secure a permanent managerial post after performing well as a caretaker, including Paul Hart at Portsmouth and David Pleat at Tottenham Hotspur.
Ferguson was in charge of Manchester United from November until his retirement at the end of the —13 season, meaning he was manager for the last five years of the old Football League First Division and all of the first 21 seasons of the Premier League.
There have been several studies into the reasoning behind, and effects of, managerial sackings. Bas ter Weel of the University of Amsterdam , performed two separate studies which helped to explain the statistics behind managerial sackings.
At the inception of the Premier League in —93 , just 11 players named in the starting line-ups for the first round of matches hailed from outside of the United Kingdom or Ireland.
On 26 December , Chelsea became the first Premier League side to field an entirely foreign starting line-up,  and on 14 February , Arsenal were the first to name a completely foreign man squad for a match.
In response to concerns that clubs were increasingly passing over young English players in favour of foreign players, in , the Home Office tightened its rules for granting work permits to players from countries outside of the European Union.
If a player does not meet those criteria, the club wishing to sign him may appeal. Players may only be transferred during transfer windows that are set by the Football Association.
The two transfer windows run from the last day of the season to 31 August and from 31 December to 31 January.
Player registrations cannot be exchanged outside these windows except under specific licence from the FA, usually on an emergency basis. There is no team or individual salary cap in the Premier League.
Th ratio of the wages of the highest paid team to lowest paid in the Premier League is 6. This is much lower than in La Liga Because of the lower differential between team wage bills in the Premier League, it is often regarded as being more competitive than other top European leagues.
The record transfer fee for a Premier League player has risen steadily over the lifetime of the competition. Italics denotes players still playing professional football, Bold denotes players still playing in the Premier League.
The Golden Boot is awarded to the top Premier League scorer at the end of each season. Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer hold the record for most goals in a season 34 — for Newcastle and Blackburn respectively.
The Premier League maintains two trophies — the genuine trophy held by the reigning champions and a spare replica. Two trophies are held in the event that two clubs could win the League on the final day of the season.
It consists of a trophy with a golden crown and a malachite plinth base. Its main body is solid sterling silver and silver gilt , while its plinth is made of malachite, a semi-precious stone.
The plinth has a silver band around its circumference, upon which the names of the title-winning clubs are listed.
Two of the lions are found above the handles on either side of the trophy — the third is symbolised by the captain of the title-winning team as he raises the trophy, and its gold crown, above his head at the end of the season.
In , a special gold version of the trophy was commissioned to commemorate Arsenal winning the title without a single defeat. A man of the match award is awarded to the player who has the greatest impact in an individual match.
These are also issued annually for Manager of the Season  , Player of the Season. The Golden Boot award is given to the top goalscorer of every season, The Playmaker of the Season award is given to the player who make the most assists of every season  and the Golden Glove award is given to the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets at the end of the season .
From the —18 season , players also receive a milestone award for appearances and every century there after and also players who score 50 goals and multiples thereof.
Each player to reach these milestones will receive a presentation box from the Premier League containing a special medallion and a plaque commemorating their achievement .
In , the Premier League celebrated its second decade by holding the 20 Seasons Awards: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
