The highest flight of English soccer is known as the Premier League. The Premier League season, which runs from August to May, features 20 clubs competing for bragging rights and millions in prize money. There are 38 games in a season (playing all 19 other teams home and away).
In addition, there are a few Welsh clubs in the English football league for historical reasons. 22 First Division teams elected to leave the Football League (now the EFL) in 1992, and so the tournament was born under its current name.
Since then, the Premier League has become the most-watched sports league in the world. An impressive number of five different English teams have won 14 UEFA Champions League/European Cup championships, which places the Premier League in second place of Europe's top five leagues by success.
