Few people who saw the debut of the Premier League on August 15, 1992 would have predicted how big and popular the phenomenon would become. In that first season, the average attendance was just over 21,000 (compare that to the average, which is now more than 35,000). Whether it’s the TV audience, the number of superstars who grace the pitch or the amount of media attention that is transfixed on the league, there’s no doubt that the Premiership (as it is sometimes called) is the world’s most popular sports league.
