10 Reasons The Premier League Is The Greatest League In The World

In this league, only the best can survive. Looking for world-class talent and competition? Look no further. Premier League is back on NBC & NBCSN. Every Match. Every Team. Every Week.

1. First of all, 4.7 billion people can’t be wrong.

Yeah, that’s just the global cumulative audience of the Barclays Premier League, no big deal. It’s not like it’s over half the entire population of the WORLD or anything.

2. The competition is the strongest in the world.

Not to say that other leagues don’t have high-quality players, but the fierceness of competition in the BPL simply cannot be matched. The gap between the leading teams is often much smaller than that of other leagues.

3. The BPL has more international talent than any other league.

The BPL had more than double the number of players than any other league at this summer’s events in Brazil.

4. The venues are breathtaking.

The stadiums are nearly as important as the players themselves; after all, each team and its respective fans need a place to call home.

5. The culture of the BPL is rooted in history.

It’s an inescapable fact that the English invented the modern game of football and exported their invention worldwide. Many “firsts” have been achieved in the English game, and the BPL is carrying on the traditions of the past.

6. The defenders in this league make it extremely difficult for anyone to score.

You want to see relentless tackles and textbook positioning? Look no further. Playing in the BPL means you have to get stuck in and take no prisoners, ever.

7. Because of this, the goals are SPECTACULAR.

Because if a team has the talent and drive to elude a difficult defense, then they’re going to score some pretty snazzy goals.

8. This league has some of the best managers in the world.

The manager is the leader that guides the team, kind of like a coach but so much more. And with names like Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger, it’ll be pretty tough for any other league to match the BPL in stature.

9. Each team has a unique playing style, making this league incredibly diverse.

From the teams that like to rely on long balls, to the sides that rely on quick and speedy wingers, you’ll find every style of football in the BPL.

10. The atmosphere at these matches is absolutely electric.

Premier League is back on NBC & NBCSN.

Every Match. Every Team. Every week.
