The Premier League is regarded as one of the most fiercely competitive football leagues in the whole world. Not only do the biggest clubs compete to win the title over the course of 38 games, there's also the chance to compete in the Champions League and Europa League. From the first match in August, there's everything to play for. It's not all about the glory of winning. Three teams are regulated to the Championship, so it's about survival too! Either way it's an exciting time to be a football fan!

The Premier League was founded in 1992 by the Football Association, who decided to rename Division 1 and originally had 22 teams - not 20, as it is now - battle it out over the course of the season –  playing each team at home and away. The second division was renamed as the English Football League Championship.

But this trivia quiz is not focused on the English Football League Championship. We're taking a look at the top tier of football in England and Wales. How much do you know about the Premier League? Maybe you're lucky enough to see your favourite team play every Saturday (or occasionally during the week) or watch the biggest matches on TV. From August until May, it's like watching a drama unfold with homegrown and international stars becoming the hero or villain over the course of 90 thrilling minutes.

If you're a Premier League fanatic or a casual armchair supporter, there's something for everyone in this very special quiz. Simply answer the questions below and you can show us how much you really know about the beautiful game!
