The English Premier League, often referred to as the EPL, is one of the most prestigious and widely followed professional football leagues in the world. It serves as the top-tier domestic league in English football and comprises 20 teams that compete annually for the coveted title of Premier League champions.
The Premier League is founded in 1992, operates on a system of promotion and relegation, with the three lowest-ranked teams at the end of each season being demoted to the second-tier Championship, while the top three Championship teams are promoted to the Premier League.
The competition takes place over a nine-month period, starting in August and concluding in May, with each team playing 38 matches (home and away) against the other clubs.
In addition to the exhilarating domestic competition, Premier League clubs often participate in prestigious international tournaments, such as the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League, showcasing their skills against other elite teams from across Europe.
