English Premier League
Football supporters across Europe will have their own views as to which is the best league on the continent. Many will stay loyal to their national divisions while others will admit that bigger and better competitions lie elsewhere. In England, the Premier League attracts huge audiences and many of the world’s best players are employed here. English teams have also enjoyed much success in the Champions League so the EPL certainly has a claim to be the best in Europe.
Unibet stays impartial on the debate but we recognise that the English Premier League is one of the most popular destinations on our sportsbook. Hundreds of markets are available for each match and we also have Unibet TV on hand to live stream the best of the action directly to our customers.
The Birth of the EPL
Organised, top flight football has been played in England for many years and the first division trophy was initially awarded way back in 1891. In the early 1990s, with live TV broadcasters eager for a revamp, a new structure was put in place.
From the start of the 1992/93 campaign, England’s elite division became the Premier League. Manchester United were the first winners of the competition and they remain the most successful side in the division’s history. United’s title success in 2012/13 was their 13th overall and their closest challengers are rivals Manchester City who picked up their fifth trophy in 2018/19.
Liverpool became only the seventh team to win the Premier League when the Reds romped to the title in 2019/20. Outright betting markets on the title winner are active here at Unibet but there’s much more to consider.
The current Premier League format sees 20 teams involved. Sides face each other home and away and each club will play 38 games across the season. Under the current format, the top four teams will progress to the Champions League while the Europa League slots can drop down to seventh place.
There is, of course, a battle to avoid relegation for the weaker teams with the bottom three clubs heading down to the Championship at the end of the season. There is, therefore, lots to play for in the English Premier League and lots of outright betting markets are published by Unibet to sit alongside.
Whether the match is a title decider, a relegation scrap and even a mid-table battle between two entertaining sides, you can watch the action develop via Unibet TV’s live streaming service.
Legends of the Game
One reason why supporters of the English Premier League feel that it’s the best division in Europe focuses on the players who have graced the competition. Many of the world’s greatest have left their mark on EPL history and the league has attracted many overseas greats including Jurgen Klinsmann, Eric Cantona, Peter Schmeichel, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Ruud van Nistelrooy and many, many more.
Great British players have also played their part including Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and the EPL’s leading scorer Alan Shearer.
In the present day, Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero, Marcus Rashford, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Kevin De Bruyne are among those who light up the English Premier League. The division will always attract the top class talent and that helps to make the live action even more exciting.
