Premier League | England - an overview

The Premier League is the flagship of professional football in England. It sits at the top level of the English football league system. It is widely regarded as one of the toughest leagues in European football. There are 20 clubs fighting for the right to belong in this league. Domestic and international TV rights and sponsorship deals net the Premier League an estimated £2.3 billion per year. Promotion to and relegation from this league is strongly contested. There is no promotion from the Premier League, but the top 4 teams qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stage. The club that finishes 5th along with the winners of the FA Cup goes into the Europa League groups. Winners of the Carabao Cup enter the second qualifying round. If the FA Cup and Carabao Cup winners have already qualified, the 6th and 7th placed teams go through to the second qualifying round of the Europa League. The bottom three teams at the end of the season are relegated to the Championship.
