The English Premier League (EPL) was founded in 1992 following a decision by clubs to break away from the traditional English First Division competition. It is contested by 20 clubs that play 38 games each season and features a relegation and promotion system each year.
The season runs from August to May with most games played on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, with occasional weekday evening fixtures. There are no finals with the Championship awarded to the team on top of the table at the end of the season.
