England is not only the birthplace of football but, according to the logic of things, the country where the football uniform first appeared. Team colors serve not only to show that athletes belong to a particular football community and to distinguish footballers on the field, but also to discipline them as much as possible, creating the notorious team spirit. The club symbolism strengthens the feeling of sports unity, giving the desire for a joint victory. For loyal fans of English football, the football form of your favorite club is an inexhaustible source of inspiration and fan spirit, a symbol of commitment to club symbols and meanings, the opportunity to feel part of a team, a member of a large football family.

The English Premier League has become the most popular football league in the world in just a little more than two decades. “Manchester United”, “Arsenal”, “Chelsea”, “Liverpool” have dominated the League almost since its inception and made an extraordinary contribution not only to the popularity of the League, but also to the sports rating, becoming the world number one among the broadcast sports events (League matches observe in over 640 million homes in 212 countries). Games demonstrate an incredible rivalry, despite the domination of some teams, which is why in most matches you can see a real sold-out. Professional soccer, as Americans call football, has very slowly gained popularity in the United States. Where most teams are simply unprofitable and all this taking into account the fact that the game is in the fourth most favorite place in the country and that more than 25 million Americans play it (many Americans start playing as children or as a teenager, after which they continue to play in amateur leagues or become loyal football fans).

We note an interesting fact that the most popular in attendance match in the United States was the game “Manchester United” – “Real Madrid.” One can argue with the fact that one of the most serious obstacles that the NFL confronted with regarding world development lies in the composition of the teams. England’s most award-winning club is Manchester United, which has won the League title 20 times. Moreover, the golden era of the “Red Devils” falls on the modern period of the Premier League, during which Manchester United won 13 titles. However, such champion “hat-tricks” are a rarity in England – for more than a century, only five such cases recorded. The pioneer was Huddersfield Town, which issued the championship series from 1924 to 1926. “Leicester” became the 24th club, which managed to win the champion title.

Over the past season, taking off in the Championship team, for three earned nearly 300 million pounds. English Premier League has published data on the distribution of 2.4 billion pounds of prize money between twenty clubs. As usual, the payments consist of five elements: the share of home and foreign TV rights, prize payouts depending on the place in the table, subsidies for the broadcasting of live matches and advertising revenues. Also, all 20 clubs of the Premier League receive equal shares from the new British TV contract in the amount of 35.3 million pounds. Even more, money comes from selling the rights to broadcast overseas — 39.1 million each in the same currency. Finally, advertising revenues replenish the club box office by another 4.8 million pounds.

According to Liverpool Echo, the new media contract spasmodically increased the revenues of all English clubs without exception. Just a year ago, total payments amounted to 1.6 billion pounds – one and a half times less than last season! Best of all, this growth illustrates this comparison: Liverpool, who finished eighth in the 2015/2016 season, earned 90.5 million, while Sunderland, who took off from the last place, will receive three million more this year. The current generation of NPS media revenue is the result of a specific chain of events and hard work. Therefore, to understand the current phenomenon, which are television broadcasts of football matches in England, a small historical excursion is needed. In the 1983-84 season that is more than 30 years ago, the League also received € 3.1 million from television channels. During this term, we will try to establish what events provoked thousand-fold increases in media revenue in English football.

1983-1991: Premier League table

Oddly enough, it all started for the English clubs far from sweet. After the “Heyselian” tragedy, where 39 people died as a result of a skirmish provoked by Liverpool fans, English football clubs barred from participating in all European tournaments until 1991. This situation had a negative impact on all commercial football activities in Albion, including significantly slowing down the growth of media revenue, which at that time was already beginning an active phase of development. The situation was aggravated by poor attendance at matches: in the 1984–85 season, the average attendance was 18,834 people, in 1991–92 it was 21,622. Only one channel fought for the right to show football matches, therefore, in the absence of competitors to sharply increase the amount of the contract there was no need. The league was also uninteresting for most foreign markets since only 11 legionaries played in England in the 1991–92 season.

Although in the 1988–1989 season as compared with the previous one, the TV channels revenue increased more than three times, by European standards, this jump was relatively mediocre. At that moment, the media boom was already beginning, catalyzing the commercialization of the football industry’s entire. That is, until 1992, English football clubs received from media rights as many as clubs in France, Spain, Germany, and Italy.

1992-2001: League Autonomy and Overseas Attraction

February 20, 1992, was founded the English Premier League, which after three months entered all members of the top division of the Football League. It was the establishment of an independent football league that allowed the clubs of the elite English division to develop dynamically in a commercial direction. That is, until 1992 all four professional football divisions held under the auspices of one organization – the Football League. As a result of the fact that the top football division was no longer economically connected with the lower tournaments, it immediately became much more attractive to all commercial partners, including the media channels. The new agreement with the SKY TV holding from 1992 to 1997 amounted to € 241 million, which is why the submarine clubs began to receive an average of € 48 million from the sale of television rights per season. Leagues outside the “big five” and now can hardly generate such income.

2002-2007: Lack of competition

After the sparkling take-off of TV-rights, the nuclear submarine gradually stalled in its growth. As a result, the gap on this indicator from other representatives of the “big five,” obtained in the late 1990s and early 2000s, almost disappeared. The stagnation of NPS media revenue is more due to the lack of competition among TV channels. In addition to SKY, no one was able to pay for league matches at that time.

2007-2019: Active promotion

The most active phase of the development of the Premier League as a television brand began precisely in 2007. Firstly, competition from the BBC and the newly formed BT Sport resumed. League has stepped up its work in the international market. More than half of all players in the Premier League are legionnaires, and there are representatives of all continental football federations. In China alone, 17 channels broadcast league matches. Overseas tours of clubs to North America and Asian countries have become commonplace, where games gather to sell out even in 100,000 arenas.

From 2006 to 2009, the Premier League clubs participated in the UEFA Champions League final, having held the first ever entirely English final in 2008. The number of applicants has increased not only for the Premier League championship but also for the finish in the Quartet, which gives the right to participate in the most prestigious club tournament in Europe. Top-4 hegemony destroyed (Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool). Analytical content has been developing creatively – Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, and Thierry Henry are the most talked about football TV-experts in the world. Regardless of what you think about the elite of the English Premier League, their abilities and thrills (or not sharp) in the attacking game. However, the quality of the central defenders in the Premier League can not question us. The central defenders of the Premier League have increased some heights and aspects in their game.

The match of the 26th round of the championship of England between “Liverpool” and “Tottenham” will be remembered not only by the brilliant and emotional game of the two teams but also by the personal achievements and records of the players and tremendous Premier League top scorers. So, forward Mohamed Salah of the home team, who scored a double, scored his 23rd goal in the Premier League for his career and became the best among all Egyptian footballers according to this indicator. Before that, Mido was the top scorer in the Premier League from this country, scoring 22 goals for Tottenham, Middlesbrough, and Wigan. In turn, the Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who equalized the score in the 90th minute from the penalty spot, became the first player in the club’s history to score 100 goals in the Premier League. To do this, Kane needed to spend a total of 142 matches. Faster than him 100 goals in the league scored only the legendary Alan Shearer, who needed 124 games. Kane also became one of the youngest players in the history of the tournament to achieve such an achievement. Before this, only three players scored 100 goals, being younger than Kane. These are Michael Owen (23 years and 133 days), Robbie Fowler (23 years and 282 days) and Wayne Rooney (24 years and 99 days). Kane scored an anniversary ball at the age of 24 years and 191 days.

Premier League of Nations launched interesting Premier League fixtures such as an interactive website that reflects the worldwide popularity of football. The site notes that in any other sport there is no such diversity as in the Premier League, pointing out that here you can see American midfielder, playing in the same team with the 21-year-old Belgian, born in Brussels parents who came out of Kosovo and Albania. The site uses a geolocation application to determine the geographic location of Twitter users who are interested in a particular player and teams to display the League’s global popularity by country indication. The results are amazing. Users from the United Kingdom occupied the top positions of most units. However, users from non-EU countries hold most of the first ten positions.
