The English Premier League is the top flight of English league football. It is also considered by many as the best league in Europe. The League was founded in 1992, taking over from the old First Division which was established in 1888.
The transition from the first division into the Premier League came after the low point to which English football has descended in the late 80s after the Heysel Stadium and Hillsborough Stadium disasters. The establishment of the Premier League made English football teams more prosperous. Modern stadiums with higher standards were built and clubs' income increased significantly thanks to TV broadcasting contracts. As a consequence, the Premier League has become the most attractive league for football fans and top players all over the world. 20 clubs take part in the league each season with the top 4 teams qualifying for the following season’s UEFA Champions League.
