Premier League – the global game. An A-Z of how the world watches English football




England’s Premier League is by far the nation’s most successful sporting export, watched live each week in more than 200 countries, and earning from foreign TV rights alone £1.437bn for the current three-year overseas deals (or £479m a year) as reported by sportingintelligence last year here and here.

But who exactly watches? And where? Why? How much?

Over the coming months, we aim to find out, and views from around the world will be indexed here by country, both A-Z and continent by continent.
