Why is the English soccer league named the Premier League?


The Premier League is the top-tier soccer league in England. It is home to some of the world’s most famous clubs, such as Manchester United and Liverpool. The Premier League was formed in 1992 when the top teams from the Football League First Division broke away from the League. The name 'Premier League' was chosen to reflect the status of the teams as the elite of English football. The League’s success has been built on the ability to attract the best players in the world and to generate huge amounts of income from television rights. The Premier League remains the most popular league in the world.
