English Premier League, the top division in England, is one of the most popular leagues around the world. With 20 teams fighting for title glory, European places and relegation, football fans across the globe are treated to months of non-stop action. The season which normally takes place from August to May will largely happen on the weekends. There are also a few midweeks where fans can expect to see this high-intense battle unfolding. The Christmas period is one of the most exciting times in the Premier League calendar, with action coming thick and fast every couple of days. 

The Football League was established in 1888. The First Division remained England’s top professional league for the next century. The 22 clubs of the First Division then decided to leave the Football League and form the Premier League in 1992. Since then, the popularity of the English Premier League is almost unmatched. The reach of the league spread beyond England and it started making waves across Europe and gradually throughout the world. With a lot of viewership coming from every corner of the globe, footballers are keen to join the Premier League.

Who has won the most number of English Premier League titles? 

Prior to the Premier League’s first season in 1992-93, Liverpool were the most dominant team in the country. However, a lot has changed since then as Manchester United started to reign supreme in England under Sir Alex Ferguson’s leadership. But their dominance has also come to an end following Ferguson’s departure from Old Trafford. In recent years, Manchester City have been the dominant force, while Liverpool have come back into the fold to provide them with a tough fight. Overall, Manchester United have won 20 league titles and Liverpool have 19 to their name.

English Premier League format

In the current top division of English football, there are a total of 20 teams and each plays a total of 38 matches. During a season, each club plays the others twice – once at their home stadium and once at their opponent’s home. Teams receive three points for a victory, one point for a draw, and zero points for a defeat. Total points, goal difference, and goals scored are used to rank teams in the points table. Other than the battle for the top spot, clubs also fight amongst each other to secure European places.

The Premier League and the EFL Championship have a promotion and relegation system. The three lowest-placed Premier League teams are relegated to the Championship, and the top two teams from the second division are promoted to the Premier League. Besides, an additional team is promoted following a series of play-offs between the Championship clubs finishing third, fourth, fifth, and sixth.

When does the 2022-23 English Premier League season start and finish?

The 2022-23 edition of the English Premier League started on the fifth of August last month when Arsenal defeated Crystal Palace 2-0. The league will continue till 28th May 2023. However, the league will be paused for a few weeks at the end of the year. Due to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, there will be a mid-season break. The final match will take place on November 12-13, 2022, and the first match following the World Cup final on December 18 will be held on December 26th.
