THE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE
The Premier League is the most followed league in the world and it is also the league that starts before all the other popular domestic leagues in the world. The Premier League was formed in the 1992 when they decided to break away from the Football League. They generate 2.2 billion euro every year in the form of domestic and international television rights. The Premier League is broadcasted to 212 regions and entertains a possible audience of 4.7 billion according to statistics. The Deloitte money league shows that there are 7 Premier League teams in the top 20 if you rank them according to average revenue. Manchester United is the most successful club in the premier league history with 13 titles followed by Chelsea with 4 titles. Manchester United has turned into the most followed club in the world under the managerial of Sir Alex Ferguson, who is the most decorated manager in the history of football. The Premier League over the years has received a lot of positive reviews due to bridge between the top and the lower teams. The competition in the Premier League is fierce and any team can beat any top team and we saw that last season in the form of Leicester FC, when they won the Premier League after being a bottom placed team the previous season.
THE SPANISH LA LIGA
La Liga is known as the league of the stars and the league has been run by the two of the biggest clubs in the form of Real Madrid and Barcelona. Real Madrid has won 32 league titles and Barcelona has won 24. These two teams have always had star players and biggest names of their generation. These two teams have featured players like Alfredo di Stefano, Ferenc Puskas, Luis Suarez, Johan Cruyff, Ronaldinho, Maradona, Xavi, Messi, Cristiano Roanldo and many others. These two teams also are in the midst of one of the fiercest rivalries in the world and their derby match is called the El Classico but the La Liga is no more a two horse races and Athletico Madrid has also entered the race under the dynamic Simeone. They won the La Liga the previous season and placed second in the latest season. Sevilla has also been performing very well in the international stage and we would love to see them compete for the league title this season.
THE UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
This tournament was started in 1955 after many years of trial and error. Real Madrid is the most successful team in this tournament with 11 wins and they are also the current teams. The 2013 final between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich was the most watched sporting event of 2013 and attracted360 million television viewers. This is played during the weekdays and the weekends are acquired by domestic cup matches. The winner of every domestic league in Europe participates in the UEFA champions’ league. Some popular leagues are represented by four teams like The English Premier League and the La Liga whereas the Serie A and the Bundesliga are represented by three teams.
