This year marks the 20th season of the English Premier League. Back in 1992, the football clubs that made up the then First Division joined forces to leave the Football League and form what has since been known as the Premier League.
In its early years, the EPL was comprised of 22 clubs. However, following the 1994-1995 season, 4 teams were relegated while only two were promoted. The Premier League has consisted of twenty teams ever since.
