Competitive home matches : Minimum 19. Maximum 35.

Each EPL team will play 19 home games in the league.

The other home games depend on how they progress in tournaments. For example, those teams who play in the group stages of the EUFA Champions League will play a minimum of 3 home games and a maximum of another 4 if they progress to the final. Although the 3rd & 4th places would also have a home qualifier.

Because the home team for the FA Cup is drawn randomly, it is possible to progress to the final without ever playing at home. The maximum home games would be 4. (SF and final being played at Neutral grounds).

The League cup is also drawn home/away, so it is possible to get to the semi-finals without playing at home (the semi is two-leg). For the teams in Europe, this would create a maximum of four home games. Non-Europe teams could add another 2.

Added: I got a round about answer from my father-in-law. He suggested there are 42 league games and maybe 6 cup games (you said 4), so I went with 48 as my answer. The reason for this was a financial model based on an 8000 capcity stadium for a fictional team, and working out scenrios such as half-full season ticket holders, etc. The model included food and drinks and souvenirs and I multiplied the number of hot-dogs, beer and drinks, etc which I averaged per game by 48 to give a season-long average income from the food/drink and souvenir sales. It made a huge difference to the income from a loss of £77K to a profit of £627K!! Amazing how much we spend on non-football sundries at games! ;)

The premier League has 20 teams that play each other twice - so there are only 38 league games. Half of these are played away from home. So 19 home league games, not 42. In 2006/07, the ever-presenf Frank Lampard played a total of 62 games - if you assumed half of those were at home (it would be less because of finals) then he would have played 31 home games that season.
