The FA Premier League is a professional football league in England which is organised by the Football Association (the FA) and is the top tier of the country's football league pyramid system. It currently (2019) consists of twenty clubs. At the end of each season, the top four teams qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League and the bottom three teams are relegated to the Football League Championship (second tier) to be replaced by three promoted teams. The league was formed by the FA in 1992 with the clubs in Football League Division One, which was until then the top tier. The new league competed for the first time in the 1992–93 season.
