ListMoto - 2016–17 Premier League


--- Advertisement ---



The 2016–17 Premier League was the 25th season of the Premier League, the top English professional league for association football clubs, since its establishment in 1992. The season began on 13 August 2016 and concluded on 21 May 2017.[4] Fixtures for the 2016–17 season were announced on 15 June 2016.[5] Chelsea won their fifth Premier League title, and sixth English title, with two matches to spare following a 1–0 away win over West Bromwich Albion on 12 May.[6] The defending champions were Leicester City, who finished 12th, thereby setting a new record for the worst Premier League title defence; the previous holders of that dubious honour were Chelsea, who had finished 10th in 2015–16 after winning the title in 2014–15.[7] Burnley, Middlesbrough and Hull City entered as the three promoted teams from the 2015–16 Football League Championship.

Overview Premier League rebranding On 9 February 2016, the Premier League announced a rebrand; beginning with the 2016–17 season, the competition was known simply as the Premier League, without any sponsor's name attached. As part of the rebranding, a new logo was introduced.[8] Ticket prices From the beginning of the 2016–17 season, ticket prices for away fans were capped at £30 per ticket.[9] Teams

Greater London Premier League football clubs

Twenty teams competed in the league – the top seventeen teams from the previous season, as well as three teams promoted from the Championship. Burnley became the first club to be promoted after a 1–0 win against Queens Park Rangers on 2 May 2016 meant they were guaranteed an automatic place.[10] They returned to the League after only a season's absence. Middlesbrough became the second club to be promoted, after a 1–1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion meant they finished above them on goal difference and secured the second automatic spot. They played Premier League football for the first time since the 2008–09 season.[11] Hull City became the third and final club to be promoted, following a 1–0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship play-off final at Wembley Stadium on 28 May 2016, to secure their return to the Premier League after only a season's absence.[12] The three promoted clubs replaced Newcastle United, Norwich City and Aston Villa. This was the first season in the Premier League era that former European Cup winners Aston Villa did not compete in the top flight of English football.[13] Stadia and locations West Ham United played for the first time at the London Stadium.[14] Although having a capacity of 60,010, for the first Premier League game this was limited to 57,000 due to safety fears following persistent standing by fans at West Ham's Europa League game played in early August.[15] Stoke City announced that from the 2016–17 season the Britannia Stadium would be renamed to the bet365 Stadium.[16] Tottenham Hotspur played at White Hart Lane with a reduced capacity, due to the north east corner of the stadium being dismantled to help facilitate building works for their new stadium being built adjacently.[17]

^ Arsenal qualified for the Europa League group stage by winning the 2016–17 FA Cup. As they had also qualified there by the virtue of their league position (5th), this spot was passed to the next-highest ranked team (6th), Manchester United. ^ Manchester United qualified for the Champions League group stage by winning the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League. Based on their league position (6th), they would have received the spot above to enter the Europa League group stage. This spot was vacated without replacement as per UEFA regulations. ^ Manchester United, winners of the 2016–17 EFL Cup, initially attained a spot in the Europa League third qualifying round. That was passed to the next-highest ranked team in the league not already qualified for UEFA competitions (7th-placed Everton).
