Most Premier League (EPL) titles 1889-2020

Manchester United are currently the record title winners in the English top flight having won the division a total of 20 times since 1889. Most of these wins came after the inception of the Premier League at the start of the 1992/93 season under the leadership of manager Sir Alex Ferguson. Indeed, United’s most recent title came in the 2012-13 season, which was Ferguson's final season of management before his retirement. Since his retirement, city rivals Manchester City have lifted the trophy three times, while Liverpool won the most recent championship during the 2019-20 season.

Power of the Premier League

The Premier League is undoubtedly one of the biggest soccer leagues in the world and is followed by fans from across the globe. As a result, the Premier League TV broadcasting rights revenue has skyrocketed from 191 million U.S. dollars in its inaugural 1992 season, to over 5.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2019. Another important revenue stream for Premier League clubs is kit sponsorships – the value of thse kit sponsorship deals amounted to almost 350 million pounds in the 2019/20 season.

Arsenal and Liverpool - kings of the cup

While Manchester United lead the way in terms of league titles, it is their historic rivals Liverpool FC who have claimed the most Football League Cup trophies. The team from Merseyside has lifted the cup a total of eight times, most recently back in 2003. The other domestic trophy that is up for grabs each year is the FA Cup, the world's oldest club soccer competition. Arsenal FC have a record 13 FA Cup wins to their name, with the club's most recent title coming in 2017. Hot on Arsenal’s heels is Manchester United, whose 2016 victory marked their 12th victory in the cup.
