History of the Premier League


What is the Premier League? 

The Premier League is where you can watch some of the best football in the world. There are 20 teams that fight it out until the end where they see if they get relegated or stay. This year’s winner is Manchester City. They have won the premier league 4 times in a row. This is the first time in 135 years that a team has done this. The 3 bottom teams get relegated, which means they get demoted to EFL Champions League. The top 3 teams from the EFL Champions League get promoted to the Premier League.

This is a picture that represents the champions of the Premier League. It shows some of their key players with their manager.




Past winners of the Premier League: 

This year Manchester City has completed the four-peat. There are many teams that have won the Premier League. Some are Manchester United (13), Manchester City (8), Chelsea (5), Arsenal (3), Blackburn Rovers (1), Leicester City (1), and Liverpool (1).

News after the Premier League: 

During the Premier League, Manchester City was accused of 115 charges of breaching Premier League regulations. These regulations consist of

  • 54x Failure to provide accurate financial information 2009-10 to 2017-18
  • 14x Failure to provide accurate details for player and manager payments from 2009-10 to 2017-18

  • 35x Failure to cooperate with Premier League investigations December 2018 – Feb 2023

In total, City have been charged with 115 breaches of Premier League regulations.

Now that the Premier League has ended, Jürgen Klopp has officially retired from professional football. He started off his coaching career coaching for a team called Mainz 05 from 2001-2008 and then took over Borussia Dortmund for 7 years. He then moved to one of the best Premier League clubs, Liverpool. He coached from 2015 to 2024. This is where he created his dynasty winning One Premier League title, one Champions League crown, an FA Cup, two EFL Cups, the Community Shield, a UEFA Super Cup, and a Fifa Club World Cup. 

This was Jürgen Klopp at his last game vs the Wolves. His players made sure to send him off with a 2-0 win.
This was Jürgen Klopp’s final appearance and goodbye to all football fans after the game. He did his final air punches at Anfield Stadium to signal that Liverpool will always be fighting.



What does this mean now that Man City has won the Premier League? 

If Manchester City is found guilty of all of the charges, they could be relegated to the EFL Champions league and get a hefty fine with point deductions. It is very unlikely that they will get their title taken away, as there needs to be very clear evidence that they were cheating in order to get their title revoked.
