The English premier league was formed in season 1992/1993
There are currently 20 teams in the Premier League. The League originally had 22 teams when it was formed in 1992, but this was dropped to 20 in 1995.
The Premier League used to be called the Football League First Division but in 1992 the teams in the Premier League branched off from this championship.

Note that at the moment the Premier League is called the Barclays Premier League because of sponsorship (Barclays being the bank.)
