The English Premier League is the icing on the cake of the European elite football leagues. Not only from England come most of the biggest and most supported clubs in Europe, but there play the most virtuous players in the world. Year after year, the competitions hold records for the most-watched league worldwide, leaving behind almost all sports competitions. The European triumphs of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City in recent years could be added to the completeness of the Premier League’s success in the football scene.
Like Japan is known as "the country of the rising sun" because of the perception that the sun rises first in the Asian country, England is labelled as "the home of football", giving the world the first written Football rules in the 19th century. England believed the best football competition in Europe must be in the home of football and, in the early 1990s, the Football Authorities decided to form a new super football league in the country. The 100-year presence of the old First Division ended in season 1991-1992. From season 1992-1993, Englad's highest football level is called The Premier League.
