The idea came closest to reality in , when Wimbledon received Premier League approval to relocate to Dublin, Ireland , but the move was blocked by the Football Association of Ireland. If this means six Premier League teams qualify, then the fourth-placed team in the Premier League instead plays in the UEFA Europa League , as any single nation is limited to a maximum of 5 teams.
The fifth-placed team in the Premier League, as well as the winner of the FA Cup , qualifies for the subsequent season's UEFA Europa League group stage, but if the winner also finished in the top five places in the Premier League, then this place reverts to the team that finished sixth. The number of places allocated to English clubs in UEFA competitions is dependent upon the position a country holds in the UEFA country coefficients , which are calculated based upon the performance of teams in UEFA competitions in the previous five years. Currently the ranking of England and de facto the Premier League is 2nd behind Spain.
An exception to the usual European qualification system happened in , after Liverpool won the Champions League the year before, but did not finish in a Champions League qualification place in the Premier League that season. However, for those leagues with four entrants in the Champions League, this meant that if the Champions League winner finished outside the top four in its domestic league, it would qualify at the expense of the fourth-placed team in the league.
At that time, no association could have more than four entrants in the Champions League.
From to , the Premier League had title sponsorship rights sold to two companies, which were Carling brewery and Barclays Bank PLC ; Barclays was the most recent title sponsor, having sponsored the Premier League from until until , the title sponsorship was held through its Barclaycard brand before shifting to its main banking brand in Barclays' deal with the Premier League expired at the end of the —16 season.
The FA announced on 4 June that it would not pursue any further title sponsorship deals for the Premier League, arguing that they wanted to build a "clean" brand for the competition more in line with those of major U. As well as sponsorship for the league itself, the Premier League has a number of official partners and suppliers. The Premier League includes some of the richest football clubs in the world.
Deloitte's " Football Money League " listed seven Premier League clubs in the top 20 for the —10 season,  and all 20 clubs were in the top 40 globally by the end of the —14 season, largely as a result of increased broadcasting revenue. Premier League clubs agreed in principle in December , to radical new cost controls.
The two proposals consist of a break-even rule and a cap on the amount clubs can increase their wage bill by each season. With the new television deals on the horizon, momentum has been growing to find ways of preventing the majority of the cash going straight to players and agents. Television has played a major role in the history of the Premier League. The League's decision to assign broadcasting rights to BSkyB in was at the time a radical decision, but one that has paid off. At the time pay television was an almost untested proposition in the UK market, as was charging fans to watch live televised football.
However, a combination of Sky's strategy, the quality of Premier League football and the public's appetite for the game has seen the value of the Premier League's TV rights soar. The Premier League sells its television rights on a collective basis. This is in contrast to some other European Leagues, including La Liga, in which each club sells its rights individually, leading to a much higher share of the total income going to the top few clubs.
The income from overseas rights is divided equally between the twenty clubs.

It sold the rights itself on a territory-by-territory basis. This occurred following an insistence by the European Commission that exclusive rights should not be sold to one television company. The TV rights agreement between the Premier League and Sky has faced accusations of being a cartel, and a number of court cases have arisen as a result. The BBC's highlights package on Saturday and Sunday nights, as well as other evenings when fixtures justify, will run until In June , it was announced that Amazon Video would televise 20 games per season in a three-year deal beginning in the —20 season.
The Premier League is particularly popular in Asia, where it is the most widely distributed sports programme. In China, the broadcast rights were awarded to Super Sports in a six-year agreement that began in the —14 season. There has been an increasing gulf between the Premier League and the Football League. Since its split with the Football League , many established clubs in the Premier League have managed to distance themselves from their counterparts in lower leagues. Owing in large part to the disparity in revenue from television rights between the leagues,  many newly promoted teams have found it difficult to avoid relegation in their first season in the Premier League.
In every season except —02 , —12 and —18, at least one Premier League newcomer has been relegated back to the Football League. In —98 , all three promoted clubs were relegated at the end of the season. The Premier League distributes a portion of its television revenue to clubs that are relegated from the league in the form of "parachute payments". For some clubs who have failed to win immediate promotion back to the Premier League, financial problems, including in some cases administration or even liquidation have followed.
Further relegations down the footballing ladder have ensued for several clubs unable to cope with the gap. As of the —18 season, Premier League football has been played in 58 stadiums since the formation of the division.
As a result, all stadiums in the Premier League are all-seater. The stadiums for the —18 season show a large disparity in capacity. For example, Wembley Stadium , the temporary home of Tottenham Hotspur, has a capacity of 90, while Dean Court , the home of Bournemouth , has a capacity of 11, Stadium attendances are a significant source of regular income for Premier League clubs. Managers in the Premier League are involved in the day-to-day running of the team, including the training, team selection and player acquisition.
Their influence varies from club-to-club and is related to the ownership of the club and the relationship of the manager with fans. Several caretaker managers have gone on to secure a permanent managerial post after performing well as a caretaker, including Paul Hart at Portsmouth and David Pleat at Tottenham Hotspur. He broke the record set by Alex Ferguson , who had managed matches with Manchester United from the Premier League's inception to his retirement at the end of the —13 season.
Ferguson was in charge of Manchester United from November until his retirement at the end of the —13 season, meaning he was manager for the last five years of the old Football League First Division and all of the first 21 seasons of the Premier League. There have been several studies into the reasoning behind, and effects of, managerial sackings.
Bas ter Weel of the University of Amsterdam , performed two separate studies which helped to explain the statistics behind managerial sackings. Bridgewater's study found clubs generally sack their managers upon dropping below an average of one point per match.
At the inception of the Premier League in —93 , just 11 players named in the starting line-ups for the first round of matches hailed from outside of the United Kingdom or Ireland. On 26 December , Chelsea became the first Premier League side to field an entirely foreign starting line-up,  and on 14 February , Arsenal were the first to name a completely foreign man squad for a match. In response to concerns that clubs were increasingly passing over young English players in favour of foreign players, in , the Home Office tightened its rules for granting work permits to players from countries outside of the European Union.
If a player does not meet those criteria, the club wishing to sign him may appeal. Players may only be transferred during transfer windows that are set by the Football Association. The two transfer windows run from the last day of the season to 31 August and from 31 December to 31 January. Player registrations cannot be exchanged outside these windows except under specific licence from the FA, usually on an emergency basis. There is no team or individual salary cap in the Premier League. The ratio of the wages of the highest paid team to lowest paid in the Premier League is 6.
This is much lower than in La Liga Because of the lower differential between team wage bills in the Premier League, it is often regarded as being more competitive than other top European leagues. The record transfer fee for a Premier League player has risen steadily over the lifetime of the competition.

It consists of a trophy with a golden crown and a malachite plinth base. Its main body is solid sterling silver and silver gilt , while its plinth is made of malachite, a semi-precious stone. The plinth has a silver band around its circumference, upon which the names of the title-winning clubs are listed.
Malachite's green colour is also representative of the green field of play. Two of the lions are found above the handles on either side of the trophy — the third is symbolised by the captain of the title-winning team as he raises the trophy, and its gold crown, above his head at the end of the season. In , a special gold version of the trophy was commissioned to commemorate Arsenal winning the title without a single defeat. In addition to the winner's trophy and the individual winner's medals awarded to players who win the title, the Premier League also issues other awards throughout the season.
