THREE POINTS QUIZ is a fact filled, pocket sized quiz book from Steve Williams.
Everybody knows somebody who likes the Premier League and this book is an ideal gift for that person. This book tests your knowledge on the competition formed as the FA Premier League which evolved following the decision of clubs in the Football League First Division to break away from The Football League, which was originally founded in 1888, and take advantage of a lucrative television rights deal. Television has played a major role in the history of the Premier League.The money from television rights has been vital in helping to create excellence both on and off the field.
The League’s decision to assign broadcasting rights to BSkyB in its very first season was at the time a radical decision, but one that has paid off. At the time pay television was an almost untested proposition in the UK market, as was charging fans to watch live televised football. However, a combination of Sky’s strategy, the quality of Premier League football and the public’s appetite for the game has seen the value of the Premier League’s TV rights soar. The first Sky television rights agreement was worth £304 million over five seasons.
The next contract rose to £670 million over four seasons. The third contract was a £1.024 billion deal with BSkyB for the three seasons from 2001-02 to 2003-04. The Premier League has since become the world’s most watched association football league. It is the world’s most lucrative football league in terms of revenue, with combined club revenues of €2.479 billion in 2009-10. The Premier League deal is now worth in excess of £1 billion a year as of 2013-14, with BSkyB and BT Group securing the rights to broadcast 116 and 38 games respectively. The Premier League is the most-watched football league in the world, broadcast in 212 territories to 643 million homes and a potential TV audience of 4.7 billion people.
All of the above has created a magnet for all clubs and players alike. The reward for any new club reaching the Premier League is an estimated £60 million for just one season. However the 38 game season results in despair for 3 clubs every year as the promotion and relegation places are fiercely competed.
This book highlights all the clubs who have taken part in the Premier League including some who have completed just one season and never returned! In relation to the clubs any individual player who is fortunate enough to maintain a Premier League contract for just a few seasons will find himself propelled into pop star/actor status and of course personal financial security in a very short time, often at a very early age.
