The Premier League as it stands today was formed in 1992 by break away clubs who wished to get more money from TV revenue teams were reduced from 24 to 20 teams and the first team to win the premiership was Manchester Utd. Before the premiership there were 24 teams in what was League One. Barclays began sponsoring it through BarclayCard in 2001 and as Barclays from 2004, with 2015-2016 being the last season of their sponsorship.
