The English Premier League has started a new season, and there are few ways to keep up with the action of the new season. The games will be streamed live in multiple locations, including Peacock as well as DirecTV streams and fuboTV. A couple offers a free trial.
It is the richest football league in the world, and the rest of Europe looks for ways to catch up.
Off the field, the English Premier League is a commercial juggernaut with broadcast deals around the world that promote player transfers that most others cannot match. This helps explain why some clubs created the Super League project.
The league’s wealth helped the summer signing of English champions Manchester City. Erling Haaland’s arrival from Borussia Dortmund cost City more than £100 million ($122 million) in transfer and agent fees.
While Haaland was a childhood City fan whose father played there, he was also lured by a competitive league that avoids the one-club dominance seen recently in Germany, Italy and France.
On the field, five different teams have won the Premier League in the past 10 seasons, including Leicester’s stupendous 2016 title. Although City have had four of their last five titles, two were epic duets with Liverpool.
The Champions League is also feeling the power of the Premier League with four different teams in the last four finals, including two All-English games. Liverpool were in three of the last five finals while winning just one Premier League title.
The same four teams – City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham – are England’s entry into the Champions League this season.
Manchester United and Arsenal only qualified for the second-tier Europa League and are the richest clubs of all time.
