Overview[]

Sleeve sponsorship[]

From this season on, club strips will feature sleeve sponsorship, whereby new sponsor logos will appear on the left sleeve of the strip for the first time.[4][5][6]

Simulation[]

From this season on, a three-man panel consisting of a former player, a former manager and a former match official will independently review video evidence on the Monday after games. Any player whom the three-man panel unanimously decide has caused an opponent to be sent off or has won a penalty as a result of deceiving the referee by simulation will be charged by the Football Association with "Successful Deception of a Match Official" which carries a penalty of suspension for two matches.[7]

Twenty teams will compete in the league – the top seventeen teams from the previous season, and three teams promoted from the Championship.

Teams promoted to the Premier League

The first club to be promoted was Brighton & Hove Albion, following their 2–1 win at home to Wigan Athletic on 17 April 2017, coupled with Huddersfield Town's 1–1 draw against Derby County. Brighton will play in the top flight of English football for the first time since 1983, and will play in the Premier League for the first time in their history.[8]

The second club to be promoted was Newcastle United, sealing an immediate return to the Premier League by beating Preston North End 4–1 at home on 24 April 2017.[9] They were crowned champions on 7 May 2017 after beating Barnsley 3–0 at home, coupled with Aston Villa's 1–1 draw against fellow promoted club Brighton.[10]

The third and final club to be promoted were playoff winners Huddersfield Town, who beat Reading 4–3 on penalties after a 0–0 draw in both regular and extra time in the EFL Championship play-off final on 29 May 2017. Huddersfield will play in the top flight of English football for the first time in 45 years, and will play in the Premier League for the first time in their history.[11]

Teams relegated to the EFL Championship

The first club to be relegated was Sunderland, their 10-year stay in the Premier League coming to an end after a 1–0 home defeat to Bournemouth on 29 April 2017.[12]

The second club to be relegated was Middlesbrough, who suffered an immediate return to the EFL Championship following a 3–0 away defeat to Chelsea on 8 May 2017.[13]

The third and final club to be relegated was Hull City, who also suffered an immediate return to the EFL Championship following a 5–0 away defeat to Crystal Palace on 14 May 2017, with Palace securing their safety in the division with the result. Defeat for Hull, coupled with relegation rivals Swansea City's 2–0 victory against Sunderland the day before, condemned them to a second relegation in three seasons.[14]
