After Queens Park Rangers sealed promotion to the Premier League via a late Bobby Zamora goal in a tense Championship playoff final at Wembley Stadium, we now know the 20 teams who will take part in the 2014-15 PL season.

The three promoted teams are QPR, Leicester City and Burnley, as they will join the top-flight of English soccer to pit their wits against the  big boys.

QPR have bounced back at the first time of asking as they were relegated from the PL last season, while Leicester return to the big time for the first time in 10 years and Burnley are back after a five-year absence. The three new boys will have an extremely tough task of staying up next season but they will benefit massively from the predicted windfall of almost $200 million promotion brings.

All three sides will add plenty to the PL next season as the full lineup of teams is now confirmed.

Below are the 20 Premier League teams for the 2014-15 season listed in alphabetical order so you can start to predict how things will shake out next season already. The countdown to the new season has already begun.

    And this matters so very little from a viewership standpoint. The same 4 or 5 teams will dominate, the same 6-10 teams will fill the middle and the rest will battle to stay up. No doubt it’s uber important, exciting, and thrilling to play in one of the best leagues with some of the best talent in the world for fans & players alike. There’s a problem with european football and it’s that money is so unevenly distributed it creates super clubs and everyone else, the EPL is a perfect example. Sure it’ll be exciting for QPR to face Arsenal & the Manchester clubs …. but they don’t have a hope nor prayer of winning anything other than moral victories. Sports should never be about moral victories.

      No prayer at all…well except that Hull City just went from newly promoted to the FA Cup Final and a spot in Europe next season.

    It’s always exciting to see a side like Liverpool back in full contention, to see Man City back on top, and to see mighty, invincible Man U get some long-overdue comeuppance. No Europe for MU this year! Oh, the humanity!

    Over a season, yes, the top clubs will dominate, but the occasional upsets make for great fun. Look at Sunderland’s late run, Crystal Palace’s progression from possible relegation to mid-table by year’s end, and such.

    On the other end of the table, the battle to avoid relegation is great drama. With two weeks to go, almost every side was still playing for something–the championship, Champions League, Europa League, or to avoid relegation. Imagine if we had that in American professional sports.
