Premier League | England - an overview
The England Premier League is the flagship of men’s professional football in the UK. The Premier League is not only one of the toughest leagues in Europe, and it’s also one of the wealthiest.
Domestic and international TV rights and sponsorship deals make the England Premier League a lucrative place to play. With an estimated £2.3 billion per year paid to the Premier League, promotion and relegation battles are fiercely contested.
