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.)
The lowest three in the English Premier League standings at the end of the season will be relegated to the Premier League Division II.
