The most-watched football league in the whole world is the English Premier League, or simply Premier League. It represents the pinnacle of the hierarchy of the English Football League. The league consists of 20 clubs, and it consists of 38 home and away games.
Three teams are either promoted to the Premier Division or demoted to a lower league according to a promotion and relegation system. August through May is the months when the season of the English Premier League can be enjoyed.
Every club in this Premier League plays one home game and one away game against every other side in the league each season. A match win awards three points to the winning side in the standings, on the other hand, a draw awards one point to each club.
The Premier League does not have a postseason tournament, instead, the team having the maximum points after the regular season ends will be crowned champion.
The UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) Champions League event, which matches the most successful national teams in European football to play against one another for winning the annual title of the greatest European club, qualifies the top four point-earning teams each year for the next season.
The top 3 finishers of the first-division (EFL Championship) clubs of the EFL will usually be promoted to the Premier League, whereas the bottom 3 clubs of this Premier League will be relegated (dropped).
