Premier league clubs, manager, location and stadium capacity.

Premier League rebranding

On 9 February 2016, the Premier League announced a rebrand; beginning with the 2016–17 season, the competition will be known simply as the Premier League, without any sponsor’s name attached. As part of their rebranding, a new logo was introduced.

Ticket prices

From the beginning of the 2016–17 season, ticket prices for away fans will be capped at £30 per ticket.


Twenty teams will compete 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. They return 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 play Premier League football for the first time since the 2008–09 season.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.

The three promoted clubs replace Newcastle United, Norwich City and Aston Villa. This will be the first season in the Premier League era that former European Cup winners Aston Villa do not compete in the top flight of English football.

Stadia and locations

West Ham United will be playing for the first time in the Olympic Stadium. Although having a capacity of 60,000, 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.

Stoke City have announced that from the 2016–17 season the Britannia Stadium will be renamed to theBet365 Stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur will be playing 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.
