Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What happens to the teams that finish in the bottom 3 of the Premier League table at the end of each season?

Answer: They are relegated

England has a complex set of football leagues, along with promotion and relegation. The teams that finish in the bottom three of the FA Premier League are relegated to the Football League Championship, the top two teams from the Championship are automatically promoted.

The teams that finished 3rd to 6th in the Championship compete in playoffs, and the winner is awarded the third promotion spot into the Premier League. The bottom 3 teams from the Championship are relegated to Football League One. Promotion is virtually the same from Football League One to the Championship, as the Championship to the Premiership. Football League One has 4 teams relegated to Football League Two, with the top 3 teams from League Two automatically promoted with positions 4th to 7th competing in playoffs and the winner is awarded the fourth promotion spot.

In England there is a set of 6 levels that each use a concept something like this. One of the main differences between the Premiership and the lower leagues, besides popularity, is that the Premiership generally has 20 teams competing. The lower leagues all have 24, with the exception of Conferences North and South with 22 teams.
2. Which of these teams did not win a title during the first 16 seasons of the Premier League (1992-93 to 2007-08)?

Answer: Liverpool

Blackburn did win the Premier League once, back in 1994-95. Other than that, the Premiership had been dominated by Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea.
Liverpool is considered as one of "The Big Four", but weren't able to produce a top of the table finish during those 16 seasons, or even be title contenders. Here are the top four positions for the 2003-04 season through the 2007-08 season.
2003-04:
1. Arsenal-90, 2. Chelsea-79, 3. Man United-75, 4. Liverpool-60. Liverpool were 30 points behind the winners, Arsenal that season. Arsenal even beat off Chelsea and United by more than 10 points, which is tough to do these days.
2004-05:
1. Chelsea-95, 2. Arsenal-83, 3. Man United-77, 4. Everton-61. Where's Liverpool? That season Liverpool were 5th in the table with 58 points. Everton managed to break into the top 4, which seems to almost be unheard of these days.
2005-06:
1. Chelsea-91, 2. Man united-83, 3. Liverpool-82, 4. Arsenal-67. That season we saw a little bit better from Liverpool, just one point behind second place, but still not contenders for the title.
2006-07:
1. Man United-89, 2. Chelsea-83, 3. Liverpool-68, 4. Arsenal-68. Liverpool slipped into third place by Goal Difference that season. Still, only 68 points, not anywhere near second placed Chelsea's 83.
2007-08:
1. Man United-87, 2. Chelsea-85, 3. Arsenal-83, 4. Liverpool 76. This was the closest League table I have shown. It was so close because, before the final game day, United and Chelsea were neck and neck with 84 points, but United had the better goal difference. United beat Wigan and Chelsea could only draw with Bolton. Arsenal were considered title challengers with their 83 points, just 4 points away from the top. Where was Liverpool? 4th place, 76 points, not title contenders.
3. Which club was the first to score 1,000 goals in the Premiership?

Answer: Manchester United

Manchester United reached the 1,000 goals milestone when Cristiano Ronaldo scored in a 4-1 loss to Middlesbrough in the 2005-06 season. The boy has an eye for goal, he also scored United's 2000th goal under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Tottenham had a 48-year record of hitting double figures on consecutive away wins (10 away wins), which was set in 1960-61. This record was finally broken by Chelsea in December of 2008 when they won their 11th consecutive away game.
4. Which two players were the only players to have scored in each and every one of the first 16 Premiership seasons (1992-93 to 2007-08)?

Answer: Ryan Giggs and Gary Speed

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs scored in each of the 16 Premiership seasons. Notably, in 2007-08 when he scored the goal on the last day of the season against Wigan Athletic, that won the game and the League title for United. While Giggs was a one-club man, Gary Speed played for a handful of Premiership clubs. He played for Leeds United, Everton, Newcastle United, Bolton Wanderers, and Sheffield United, in that order. He scored for each and everyone of those clubs at least once.

Gerrard and Lampard were not old enough to play in the first Premiership season. Gerrard had been with Liverpool since 1987, but didn't break into the first team until 1997. Lampard started his career at West Ham United, but didn't play for their senior team until 1994. Since then, he went on loan at Swansea City, and in 2001 he transferred to Chelsea and managed to build a somewhat successful career with 2 league titles.
5. Beginning with the 2009-10 season, what happens to the teams that finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the league?

Answer: They automatically qualify for group stages of the next Champions League

The team that wins the UEFA Champions League will qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup and will represent Europe.
6. What is the main component of the body of the premiership trophy?

Answer: Sterling silver

The Premier League trophy was created in London by Royal Jewellers Asprey. The trophy is 30 inches tall, 9.8 inches deep, and 17 inches wide, and weighs 56 pounds. The main components of the body are sterling silver and silver gilt. The base is made of malachite.

The base has a silver band rapped around it, which has the names of all the title winning clubs. The green color of malachite represents the green field of play. The trophy was designed with the influence of Three Lions which is associated with English football. Two of the lions can be found on the handles of the trophy.

The captain of the title winning team symbolizes the third lion while he raises the trophy, with its gold crown, above his head at the end of the season. When the trophy was first created, it read "The F.A. Premier League", since then it has had several names on its face.

The 2006-07 trophy read "The Barclays Premiership", while the 2007-08 trophy said just "Premier League". Starting with the 2008-09 season, the trophy read "Barclays Premier League".
7. Which of these Premiership superstars was the first to score 260 goals in the Premier League?

Answer: Alan Shearer

During his time at Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United, Shearer managed to score 260 premiership goals. In 10 out of his 14 premiership seasons, he finished within the top 10 goal scorers and he was the top scorer himself three times. In the 1995-96 season Shearer became the first player to pluck 100 premiership goals.
8. There is a women's Premier League.

Answer: True

Nearly all of its clubs are connected with Premier League and Football League teams, but the teams are only semi-professional. There hasn't been a professional team since Fulham went back to semi-pro in 2003. The league has 12 clubs, with a promotion and relegation system with the Northern and Southern Divisions. Since its creation in 1993, Arsenal has dominated the Women's Premier League, winning 10 of the first 15 titles.

The women's game is not as popular as the men's, so we often find Women's Premier League teams playing at stadiums owned by non-league men's clubs.
9. What is the nationality of both Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez?

Answer: Argentinian

Tevez and Mascherano both played for Brazilian club Corinthians before coming to the Premier League to play for West Ham United. When Carlos and Javier arrived a West Ham, West Ham began a horrible losing streak, and they both got more than their fair share of criticism.

There were rumors and speculation as to whether West Ham truly owned the players. In the 2007 January transfer window Mascherano transfered to Liverpool, while Carlos chose to stay at West Ham for at least another half a season. With Mascherano gone, Carlos ended up keeping West Ham in the Premier League almost single-handedly. Notably with his goal against Manchester United (on the last day of the season) that kept West Ham out of the relegation zone; they ended up in 15th place. That summer there was a transfer saga about where Tevez would go if he went, or if he would stay. West Ham didn't like the idea of selling him because he was their player, under their contract until 2010. Eventually he went on loan to the Theatre of Dreams and scored 19 goals in his first season there.
10. Which of these Premiership stadiums had the largest capacity in the mid-2000s?

Answer: The Emirates Stadium

The Emirates had the largest capacity at 60,355. The Stadium of Light had a capacity of 48,707, Anfield had a capacity of 45,522, and Villa Park was 42,640. The smallest Premiership stadium was Fratton Park, which was home to Portsmouth. It had a small capacity of 20,688. The largest stadium was Old Trafford with a capacity of 76,212.
