The Premier League (for reasons of sponsorship Barclays Premier League), is the highest category of the england football club league.
The Premier League was founded in 1992 by the Football League First Division (until then the top flight of the English league) to break away from the Football League to take advantage of a lucrative television rights deal.
The top four places qualify for the UEFA Champions League (The first two go directly to the group stage and the other two to the third qualifying round). The 5th place automatically qualifies for the UEFA Cup, and enter the first qualifying round. The sixth and seventh can also qualify, depending on what happens in the two cup competitions, the FA Cup, and the FA League Cup. If the FA Cup winners and runners-up finish in the top five, the UEFA Cup place would go to sixth place in the Premier League. If the League Cup is won by a team that has already qualified for a European competition, the League Cup winner's place goes to the highest ranked team that has not qualified for Europe.
