Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when a Premier League team is relegated to the bottom?

At the conclusion of every Premier League season, those teams that finish at the bottom of the table in the league are relegated from the Premier League to the Championship. The top two teams in the Championship along with the champion of the Championship playoffs are promoted into the Premier League the following season.

How is Premier League winning determined?

The Premier League winner is the team with the most points during the 38-game regular season. Teams earn three points for a win, one point for a draw, and no points for a loss. If teams finish the season with equal points, then the winner is determined by the goal difference and, if needed, the number scored. If the teams still are level, then a game at a neutral ground may decide the title. But this scenario is not known to have happened in Premier League.

What is the function of the video assistant referee (VAR), in the Premier League?

The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system is utilized in the Premier League to aid on-field referees in making the correct decisions regarding goals, penalty decisions, direct red card incidents, and cases of mistaken identity. The VAR reviews footage of the incident in question and advises the referee, who then has the option to view a replay on the pitchside monitor before making the final decision. The system is designed to reduce human error that can affect the outcome of matches.

Is the Premier League governed by financial regulations?
