What: The Premiership
When: Aug. 6 – May 2017
Why It’s a Big Deal
Though Spain’s La Liga and Germany’s Bundesliga are on the rise, the Premiership remains home to the best soccer in the world. Period.
Team to Beat
Leicester City, the perennial also-rans who beat 5,000-to-1 odds to win the league last season.
All eyes are on Leicester’s star-goal scorer Jamie Vardy and on Man U.’s wunderkind, Marcus Rashford.
With new coach Pep Guardiola at Manchester City— and José Mourinho at Man U.—tabloids are already hyping “El Crassico.”
How to Watch It
Ever since NBC picked up the Premiership contract, we have access to more televised games here in the U.S. than they do in England.
