The Barclays Premier League is the most popular football competition in the world, with TV rights sold worldwide for billions of pounds each season. From its inception in the 1992/1993 season, Premier League football has gripped viewers like never before, with the influx of the world’s most talented footballers to the spiritual home of the sport a match made in heaven.

But it is not just Leicester who are doing so well.
