The New System
The new system clubs record

The defending champions in the current league are Manchester City.
The League History
The EPL-English Premier League competition was formed on February 20, 1992, which replaced the English Professional League’s 1992-1993 season. This historic move means changing the 104-year tournament and four-degree system. The move was to boost football in England after suffering in the mid-1980s from poor material potential and problems of English football rioters (Hooligans).
The first meeting to sign the tournament charter occurred on July 17, 1991. Following the agreement to establish the league, work began on searching for sponsors for the tournament and issuing a special license for television broadcasting. On May 27, 1992, the Premier League was published as a company working in cooperation with the English Football Association.
Big Picture Project
Project Big Picture was announced in October 2020 and described a plan to reunite the top EPL-English Premier League clubs with the English Football League, proposed by Premier League clubs such as Manchester United and Liverpool. It has been criticized by the Premier League leadership and the UK Government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
On April 26, 2021, the play was suspended during a match between Leicester City and Crystal Palace to allow players Wesley Fofana and Sheikhou Kouyate to have breakfast during Ramadan. This is the first time in Premier League history that a match has been paused to allow Muslim players to eat and drink after sunset by the rules of faith.
The 2022-23 season will be the first to take six weeks off between November and December 2022 to allow the first Winter World Cup, with Boxing Day matches returning.
Emirati companies Sponsorship
In April 2022, a report from Der Spiegel, based on leaked internal documents, claimed that Abu Dhabi owners had made payments to the club disguised as sponsorship payments by Emirati companies such as Etihad and Telecom (the same claim that the club successfully defended at CAS in 2020); Sheikh Mansour’s Abu Dhabi United Group allegedly indirectly paid underage players to sign with the club; The club claimed to have used a fictitious contract between Roberto Mancini and Mansour’s Al Jazeera club to pay the former manager a substantial compensation fee, in addition to his salary. The EPL-English Premier League has investigated the three cases for the past three years. In response, the club rejected the allegations as incorrect, with sources close to the club saying the report was a continuation of an “organized campaign” and part of an “endless attempt to harm us.”
