“The level of football in England is the top. English football is the leader in the world”

In 2011 Pelé said the Premiership is the most widely watched football league on TV in the world and that remains true today. Competitive football kicked off in England in 1871 with the FA Cup followed by league football in 1888. The top English football teams played in the First Division until 1992 when it was split off from the Football League and re-branded as the FA Premier League, more commonly known as the English Premier League, or the Premiership.
