What is the Premier League?

The Premier League is the biggest football tournament, with 20 of the best football teams from England and Wales taking part.

The season lasts from August to May.

The team that accumulates the most points by the end of the season are the winners of the Premier League, and the top four teams have a chance to play the most important competition in European football- The Champions League.

However, teams who don’t do so well end up being at the bottom of the table. The three teams who haven’t done well will be dropped into the competition below- The Championship. This is called being relegated.

The teams that do well in the Championship then get promoted by moving into the Premier League.
