The English Premier League is the number one competition to make the most revenue among all the football competitions around the world. Various football competitions have been selling their TV rights for whopping figures who have also managed to strike lucrative deals with various massive brands acting as official partners. Various brands have become the main sponsors of the Premier League since the tournament was first set up to play 30 years back in 1992.
Sponsors of the Premier League
Barclays and Carling Brewery have been the major partners for the Premier League for several years, however 5 years back in 2016, the English Premier League announced a change in the strategy of their sponsorship.
