The Premier League is the most watched continuous annual global sporting event in the world. Last season saw a record average stadium occupancy of 96.3% and around the globe the Premier League is broadcast into 900 million homes in 190 countries.
The quality of football and the interest that it generates allows the Premier League to support all areas of the sport. This season it will invest in even more community football facilities whilst delivering hundreds of projects, through professional clubs right through the Premier League and Football League, that focus on improving sports coaching and education in schools and inspiring young people to play and benefit from sport.
On top of this, the Premier League supports the wider footballing pyramid, investing in the Football League, the Football Conference and many other football bodies. Premier League football also provides in excess of £2.4bn per season to the UK Government in tax revenue.
