Premier League -

The researchers also identified specific issues, such as handball and offside decisions, that fans are particularly critical of. The study concludes that VAR has not been well received by fans in the Premier League, and that efforts to improve the technology and increase transparency in decision-making are needed to address these concerns.

Fifty clubs have played in the Premier League from its inception in , up to and including the —23 season. Twenty clubs are competing in the —24 season — top seventeen from the previous season and three promoted from the Championship. In , after Swansea City gained promotion, a Welsh club participated in the Premier League for the first time.

Because they are members of the Football Association of Wales FAW , the question of whether clubs like Swansea should represent England or Wales in European competitions has caused long-running discussions in UEFA.

Swansea took one of England's three available places in the Europa League in —14 by winning the League Cup in — Participation in the Premier League by some Scottish or Irish clubs has sometimes been discussed, but without result.

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.

The top four teams in the Premier League qualify automatically for the subsequent season's UEFA Champions League league stage. The winners of the Champions League and UEFA Europa League may earn an additional qualification for the subsequent season's Champions League league stage if did not finish in the top four.

If this means six Premier League teams qualify, then the fourth-placed team in the Premier League is instead entered in the Europa League, as any single nation is limited to a maximum of five teams in the Champions League. However, starting from —25 UEFA Champions League there's additional berth for two best associations in the previous season's ranking, which may result in a maximum of 6 teams from one assiociation in the Champions League.

The fifth-placed team in the Premier League, as well as the winners of the FA Cup , qualify for the subsequent season's Europa League group stage, but if the winner of the FA Cup also finished in the top five places in the Premier League or has won one of UEFA's major tournaments, then this place reverts to the team that finished sixth.

The winner of the EFL Cup qualifies for the subsequent season's UEFA Europa Conference League , but if the winner had already qualified for a UEFA competition via their performance in another competition, then this place reverts to the team that finished sixth in the Premier League, or seventh if the FA Cup result had already caused the sixth-placed team to qualify.

The number of places allocated to English clubs in UEFA competitions is dependent upon the position the country holds in the UEFA coefficient rankings, which are calculated based on the performance of teams in UEFA competitions over the previous five years.

Currently, England is ranked first, ahead of Spain. As of 14 December , the coefficients for are as follows only top five European leagues are shown : [] []. An exception to the usual European qualification system happened in , after Liverpool won the Champions League the season before , but did not finish in a Champions League qualification place in the Premier League.

UEFA gave special dispensation for Liverpool to enter the Champions League, giving England five qualifiers. However, for those leagues with four entrants in the Champions League, this meant that if the Champions League winners finished outside the top four in its domestic league, it would qualify at the expense of the fourth-placed team.

At that time, no association could have more than four entrants in the Champions League. From —16 , the Europa League winners qualify for the Champions League, increasing the maximum number of participants per country to five.

If both Champions League and Europa League winners are of the same association and both finish outside the top four, then the fourth-placed team is transferred to the Europa League. With 48 continental trophies won, English clubs are the third-most successful in European football, behind Italy 49 and Spain In the top-tier UEFA Champions League , a record six English clubs have won a total of 15 titles and lost a further 11 finals , behind Spanish clubs with 19 and 11, respectively.

They a made a total of six appearances in the one-off competition, winning only one of them, and withdrew a further three times. After an inaugural season with no sponsorship, the Premier League was sponsored by Carling from until , during which time it was known as the FA Carling Premiership.

In , a new sponsorship deal with Barclaycard saw the league rebranded the FA Barclaycard Premiership, which was changed to the FA Barclays Premiership in time for the —05 season. For the —08 season, the league was rebranded the Barclays Premier League.

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.

sports leagues. 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. Central payments for the —17 season amounted to £2,,, across the 20 clubs, with each team receiving a flat participation fee of £35,, and additional payments for TV broadcasts £1,, for general UK rights to match highlights, £1,, for each live UK broadcast of their games and £39,, for all overseas rights , commercial rights a flat fee of £4,, and a notional measure of "merit" which was based upon final league position.

Since its split with the Football League , established clubs in the Premier League have a funding disparity from counterparts in lower leagues. Revenue from television rights between the leagues has played a part in this. Promoted teams have found it difficult to avoid relegation in their first Premier League season.

In the —98 season, all three promoted clubs were relegated by the season's end. The Premier League distributes a portion of its television revenue as "parachute payments" to relegated clubs for adjustment to television revenue loss.

The average Premier League team receives £41 million [] while the average Championship club receives £2 million. Clubs which have failed to win immediate promotion back to the Premier League have seen financial problems, in some cases administration or liquidation.

Further relegations down the footballing ladder have occurred for multiple clubs unable to cope with the gap. Television has played a major role in the history of the Premier League.

The League's decision to assign broadcasting rights to Sky in was at the time a radical decision, but one that has paid off. At the time, paid 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. Not all Premier League matches are televised in the United Kingdom, as the league upholds the long-standing prohibition on telecasts of any association football match domestic or otherwise that kicks off between p.

and p. on Saturday matchdays. The first Sky television rights agreement was worth £ million over five seasons. The league brought in £ million from the sale of its international rights for the three-year period from to 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. Sky and Setanta paid £1. Setanta also hold rights to a live 3 pm match solely for Irish viewers.

The BBC retained the rights to show highlights for the same three seasons on Match of the Day for £ on matchday. The TV rights agreement between the Premier League and Sky faced accusations of being a cartel, and a number of court cases arose as a result.

The BBC's highlights package on Saturday and Sunday nights, as well as other evenings when fixtures justify, ran until The remaining games were retained by Sky , which paid £ million-a-year. The total domestic rights raised £3. A new rights cycle began in the —20 season, with the domestic package increasing to matches overall; in February , BT were awarded the package of 32 lunchtime fixtures on Saturdays, while Sky was awarded four of the seven packages, covering the majority of weekend fixtures including eight new prime time fixtures on Saturdays , as well as Monday and Friday matches.

Two remaining packages of 20 fixtures each were to be sold at a later date, including three rounds of mid-week fixtures and a bank holiday round.

As Sky already owned the maximum number of matches it could hold without breaching a match cap, it was speculated that at least one of the new packages could go to a new entrant, such as a streaming service. The five packages sold to BT and Sky were valued at £4.

With the resumption of play in the —20 Premier League due to the COVID pandemic in the United Kingdom , the Premier League announced that all remaining matches would be carried on British television, split primarily across Sky, BT, and Amazon.

A large number of these matches were also scheduled for free-to-air broadcasts, with Sky airing 25 on Pick , Amazon streaming its four matches on Twitch , and the BBC — for the first time in league history — carrying four live matches.

As matches would continue to be played without spectators upon the start of the —21 Premier League , its clubs voted on 8 September to continue broadcasting all matches through at least September with the BBC and Amazon each holding one additional match , and "appropriate arrangements" being made for October.

The PPV scheme was poorly received; the Football Supporters' Federation felt that the price was too high, and there were concerns that it could encourage piracy. There were calls from supporters to boycott the pay-per-views, and make donations to support charitable causes instead with Newcastle's "Charity Not PPV" campaign raising £20, for a local food bank, and Arsenal fans raising £34, for Islington Giving.

On 13 November, amid the reintroduction of measures across the UK, the Premier League officially announced that the non-televised matches would be assigned to its main broadcast partners, and again including additional matches for the BBC and Amazon Prime.

The next cycle of rights between —23 and —25 season was renewed without tender due to compelling and exceptional circumstances in light of the COVID pandemic. Therefore, rights remained as they were since the —20 season. In August , it was announced the BBC would be creating a new magazine-style show for the Premier League entitled The Premier League Show.

The Premier League is the most-watched football league in the world, broadcast in territories to million homes and a potential TV audience of 4. The Premier League is the most widely distributed sports programme in Asia. In Australia, Optus telecommunications holds exclusive rights to the Premier League, providing live broadcasts and online access Fox Sports formerly held rights.

The Premier League is broadcast in the United States by NBC Sports , a division of Sky parent Comcast. The Premier League is broadcast by SuperSport across sub-Saharan Africa. As of the —24 season, Premier League football has been played in 61 stadiums since the formation of the division.

As a result, all stadiums in the Premier League are all-seater. The stadiums for the —24 season show a large disparity in capacity. For example, Old Trafford , the home of Manchester United , has a capacity of 74, 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.

I have never known this level before. Of course, there are managers in Germany, Italy, and Spain, but in the Premier League, these are the best managers, the elite managers.

The quality, the preparation. The level is so high. Pep Guardiola , on the quality of managers of Premier League teams. 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 , David Pleat at Tottenham Hotspur and Ole Gunnar Solskjær at Manchester United.

Arsène Wenger is the longest-serving manager, having been in charge of Arsenal in the Premier League from to his departure at the conclusion of the —18 season, and holds the record for most matches managed in the Premier League with , all with Arsenal.

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. Most famously, Professor Sue Bridgewater of the University of Liverpool and Dr.

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.

Player transfers may only take place within transfer windows 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. 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 , in response to concerns that clubs were increasingly passing over young English players in favour of foreign players, 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.

Following the implementation of Brexit in January , new regulations were introduced which require all foreign players to obtain a Governing Body Endorsement GBE in order to play football in the United Kingdom, regardless of EU status. Italics denotes players still playing professional football, Bold denotes players still playing in the Premier League.

The Premier League Golden Boot is awarded each season to the top scorer in the division. Former Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer holds the record for most Premier League goals with Erling Haaland holds the record for most goals in a Premier League season 38 matches with 36 goals as of 15 May There is no team or individual salary cap in the Premier League.

As a result of the increasingly lucrative television deals, player wages rose sharply following the formation of the Premier League, when the average player wage was £75, per year.

The total salary bill for the 20 Premier League clubs in the —19 season was £1. The club with the highest average wage is Manchester United at £6. This is smaller than the club with the highest wage bill in Spain Barcelona £ For the —19 season, 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. Before the start of the first Premier League season, Alan Shearer became the first British player to command a transfer fee of more than £3 million.

The Premier League maintains two trophies — the genuine trophy held by the reigning champions and a spare replica. Two trophies are held for the purpose of making the award within minutes of the title being secured, in the event that on the final day of the season two clubs are still within reach of winning the League.

It consists of a trophy with a golden crown and a malachite plinth base. The plinth weighs 33 pounds 15 kg and the trophy weighs 22 pounds 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. The green of the malachite represents 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.

A man-of-the-match award is awarded to the player who has the greatest impact in an individual match. Monthly awards are also given for the Manager of the Month , Player of the Month and Goal of the Month.

The Young Player of the Season award is given to the most outstanding U player starting from the —20 season. The Golden Boot award is given to the top goalscorer of every season, the Playmaker of the Season award is given to the player who makes the most assists of every season, [] and the Golden Glove award is given to the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets at the end of the season.

From the —18 season , players receive a milestone award for appearances and every century there after and also players who score 50 goals and multiples thereof.

Each player to reach these milestones is to receive a presentation box from the Premier League containing a special medallion and a plaque commemorating their achievement. In , the Premier League celebrated its second decade by holding the 20 Seasons Awards: []. Contents move to sidebar hide.

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.

Central payments for the —17 season amounted to £2,,, across the 20 clubs, with each team receiving a flat participation fee of £35,, and additional payments for TV broadcasts £1,, for general UK rights to match highlights, £1,, for each live UK broadcast of their games and £39,, for all overseas rights , commercial rights a flat fee of £4,, and a notional measure of "merit" which was based upon final league position.

Since its split with the Football League , established clubs in the Premier League have a funding disparity from counterparts in lower leagues.

Revenue from television rights between the leagues has played a part in this. Promoted teams have found it difficult to avoid relegation in their first Premier League season. In the —98 season, all three promoted clubs were relegated by the season's end.

The Premier League distributes a portion of its television revenue as "parachute payments" to relegated clubs for adjustment to television revenue loss. The average Premier League team receives £41 million [] while the average Championship club receives £2 million. Clubs which have failed to win immediate promotion back to the Premier League have seen financial problems, in some cases administration or liquidation.

Further relegations down the footballing ladder have occurred for multiple clubs unable to cope with the gap.

Television has played a major role in the history of the Premier League. The League's decision to assign broadcasting rights to Sky in was at the time a radical decision, but one that has paid off. At the time, paid 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. Not all Premier League matches are televised in the United Kingdom, as the league upholds the long-standing prohibition on telecasts of any association football match domestic or otherwise that kicks off between p.

and p. on Saturday matchdays. The first Sky television rights agreement was worth £ million over five seasons. The league brought in £ million from the sale of its international rights for the three-year period from to 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. Sky and Setanta paid £1. Setanta also hold rights to a live 3 pm match solely for Irish viewers. The BBC retained the rights to show highlights for the same three seasons on Match of the Day for £ on matchday.

The TV rights agreement between the Premier League and Sky faced accusations of being a cartel, and a number of court cases arose as a result. The BBC's highlights package on Saturday and Sunday nights, as well as other evenings when fixtures justify, ran until The remaining games were retained by Sky , which paid £ million-a-year.

The total domestic rights raised £3. A new rights cycle began in the —20 season, with the domestic package increasing to matches overall; in February , BT were awarded the package of 32 lunchtime fixtures on Saturdays, while Sky was awarded four of the seven packages, covering the majority of weekend fixtures including eight new prime time fixtures on Saturdays , as well as Monday and Friday matches.

Two remaining packages of 20 fixtures each were to be sold at a later date, including three rounds of mid-week fixtures and a bank holiday round.

As Sky already owned the maximum number of matches it could hold without breaching a match cap, it was speculated that at least one of the new packages could go to a new entrant, such as a streaming service.

The five packages sold to BT and Sky were valued at £4. With the resumption of play in the —20 Premier League due to the COVID pandemic in the United Kingdom , the Premier League announced that all remaining matches would be carried on British television, split primarily across Sky, BT, and Amazon.

A large number of these matches were also scheduled for free-to-air broadcasts, with Sky airing 25 on Pick , Amazon streaming its four matches on Twitch , and the BBC — for the first time in league history — carrying four live matches.

As matches would continue to be played without spectators upon the start of the —21 Premier League , its clubs voted on 8 September to continue broadcasting all matches through at least September with the BBC and Amazon each holding one additional match , and "appropriate arrangements" being made for October.

The PPV scheme was poorly received; the Football Supporters' Federation felt that the price was too high, and there were concerns that it could encourage piracy. There were calls from supporters to boycott the pay-per-views, and make donations to support charitable causes instead with Newcastle's "Charity Not PPV" campaign raising £20, for a local food bank, and Arsenal fans raising £34, for Islington Giving.

On 13 November, amid the reintroduction of measures across the UK, the Premier League officially announced that the non-televised matches would be assigned to its main broadcast partners, and again including additional matches for the BBC and Amazon Prime.

The next cycle of rights between —23 and —25 season was renewed without tender due to compelling and exceptional circumstances in light of the COVID pandemic.

Therefore, rights remained as they were since the —20 season. In August , it was announced the BBC would be creating a new magazine-style show for the Premier League entitled The Premier League Show. The Premier League is the most-watched football league in the world, broadcast in territories to million homes and a potential TV audience of 4.

The Premier League is the most widely distributed sports programme in Asia. In Australia, Optus telecommunications holds exclusive rights to the Premier League, providing live broadcasts and online access Fox Sports formerly held rights.

The Premier League is broadcast in the United States by NBC Sports , a division of Sky parent Comcast. The Premier League is broadcast by SuperSport across sub-Saharan Africa. As of the —24 season, Premier League football has been played in 61 stadiums since the formation of the division.

As a result, all stadiums in the Premier League are all-seater. The stadiums for the —24 season show a large disparity in capacity. For example, Old Trafford , the home of Manchester United , has a capacity of 74, 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.

I have never known this level before. Of course, there are managers in Germany, Italy, and Spain, but in the Premier League, these are the best managers, the elite managers. The quality, the preparation. The level is so high. Pep Guardiola , on the quality of managers of Premier League teams.

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 , David Pleat at Tottenham Hotspur and Ole Gunnar Solskjær at Manchester United.

Arsène Wenger is the longest-serving manager, having been in charge of Arsenal in the Premier League from to his departure at the conclusion of the —18 season, and holds the record for most matches managed in the Premier League with , all with Arsenal.

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. Most famously, Professor Sue Bridgewater of the University of Liverpool and Dr. 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. Player transfers may only take place within transfer windows 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. 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 , in response to concerns that clubs were increasingly passing over young English players in favour of foreign players, 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. Following the implementation of Brexit in January , new regulations were introduced which require all foreign players to obtain a Governing Body Endorsement GBE in order to play football in the United Kingdom, regardless of EU status.

Italics denotes players still playing professional football, Bold denotes players still playing in the Premier League. The Premier League Golden Boot is awarded each season to the top scorer in the division.

Former Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer holds the record for most Premier League goals with Erling Haaland holds the record for most goals in a Premier League season 38 matches with 36 goals as of 15 May There is no team or individual salary cap in the Premier League.

As a result of the increasingly lucrative television deals, player wages rose sharply following the formation of the Premier League, when the average player wage was £75, per year.

The total salary bill for the 20 Premier League clubs in the —19 season was £1. The club with the highest average wage is Manchester United at £6.

This is smaller than the club with the highest wage bill in Spain Barcelona £ For the —19 season, 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. Before the start of the first Premier League season, Alan Shearer became the first British player to command a transfer fee of more than £3 million.

The Premier League maintains two trophies — the genuine trophy held by the reigning champions and a spare replica. Two trophies are held for the purpose of making the award within minutes of the title being secured, in the event that on the final day of the season two clubs are still within reach of winning the League.

It consists of a trophy with a golden crown and a malachite plinth base. The plinth weighs 33 pounds 15 kg and the trophy weighs 22 pounds 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. The green of the malachite represents 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. A man-of-the-match award is awarded to the player who has the greatest impact in an individual match.

Monthly awards are also given for the Manager of the Month , Player of the Month and Goal of the Month. The Young Player of the Season award is given to the most outstanding U player starting from the —20 season. The Golden Boot award is given to the top goalscorer of every season, the Playmaker of the Season award is given to the player who makes the most assists of every season, [] and the Golden Glove award is given to the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets at the end of the season.

From the —18 season , players receive a milestone award for appearances and every century there after and also players who score 50 goals and multiples thereof. Each player to reach these milestones is to receive a presentation box from the Premier League containing a special medallion and a plaque commemorating their achievement.
