The English Premier League (or “EPL”) was founded in February 1992. Throughout its history, only six clubs have won the League; Manchester United (13 times), Chelsea (five times), Manchester City (four times), Arsenal (three times), Leicester (once), and Blackburn Rovers (once).
The number of League winners is in stark contrast to the number of teams that have played in the top flight since inception. As of the conclusion of the 2018-2019 season, there have been 49 teams that have taken part in the League. Some commentators have decried this gap as bad for soccer because not everyone has a fair chance (or a billionaire to bankroll the team). However, there are significant concerns are between the top flight and the Sky Bet Championship because of the substantial differences in revenue. Championship teams struggle more and more frequently trying to either make it to the top tier or to remain, and their balance sheets go substantially negative.
