About the Premier League

The Premier League is the organizing body of the Premier League with responsibility for the competition; its Rule Book and the centralized broadcast and other commercial rights.

However, we do not operate in isolation. We work proactively and constructively with our Member Clubs and the other football authorities to improve the quality of football; both in England and across the world.

The Member Clubs of the Premier League

The Premier League is a private company wholly owned by its 20 Member Clubs who make up the League at any one time.

Each individual club is independent, working within the rules of football; as defined by the Premier League, The FA, UEFA and FIFA; as well as being subject to English and European law.

Each of the 20 clubs are a Shareholder in the Premier League. Consultation is at the heart of the Premier League and Shareholder meetings are the ultimate decision-making forum for Premier League policy and are held at regular intervals during the course of the season.

The Premier League AGM takes place at the close of each season; at which time the relegated clubs transfer their shares to the clubs promoted into the Premier League from the Football League Championship.

Clubs have the opportunity to propose new rules or amendments at the Shareholder meeting. Each Member Club is entitled to one vote and all rule changes and major commercial contracts require the support of at least a two-thirds vote, or 14 clubs, to be agreed.

Therefore, the Premier League Rule Book, contained within the Handbook (Download: Premier League Handbook; PDF 16.4MB), serves as a contract between the League; the Member Clubs and one another; defining the structure and running of the competition.

Thus, any serious breach of the Rule Book results in an independent three-person tribunal sitting to hear the case, ascertain guilt, and set the punishment, which can range from fines to points deductions and; in extreme cases, expulsion from the competition (this has never happened in the history of the Premier League).
