Goals fly in, records tumble as Premier League delivers a feast

23premierAgencies, London
The Premier League lived up to its reputation as the most entertaining and exciting league in the world on Saturday as the goals flowed, records were broken and a major controversy added extra spice to the heady mix.
From the early afternoon kick-off at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea crushed Arsenal by a record 6-0 to the evening game across London at Upton Park where champions Manchester United beat West Ham 2-0, millions of viewers in over 200 territories around the world certainly got their money’s worth.

The Premier League’s latest TV broadcasting rights deal for 2013-16 is worth in excess of 5.0 billion pounds ($8.25 billion) with a global TV reach unparalleled by any other league.

Recent British government figures show that tourists coming to England who watch Premier League games spend in excess of 800 million pounds a year on tickets, merchandising, transportation and all the other sundries in getting to and from a match.

And those who were at Stamford Bridge, Upton Park, Cardiff City Stadium or the Etihad in Manchester on Saturday would not have been disappointed.
