Premier League


The Premier League is the organising body of the Barclays Premier League with responsibility for the competition, its Rule Book and the centralised broadcast and other commercial rights.

The principal objective of the Premier League is to stage the most competitive and compelling league with world-class players and, through the equitable distribution of broadcast and commercial revenues, to enable clubs to develop so that European competition is a realistic aim and, once there, they are playing at a level where they can compete effectively.

Many of the most famous clubs in world football play in the Barclays Premier League and, thanks to the PL distribution model - which is the most equitable in top-flight European football - the League is incredibly competitive, unpredictable and exciting. In recent seasons, the battles for the Title, UEFA Champions League places and to avoid relegation have been the tightest and hardest fought on record.
