With more choices come more success
Consumers, in this case sports addicts, love choices. They often don’t know what to do when the season of their favorite sport is over and can actually enter into a depression not unlike Seasonal Affective Disorder as a result. But the more things that people have to be excited about, the more they will follow them throughout the year. While some may feel that the rise of the NFL and even Major League Soccer (MLS) is a bad thing for English Premier League, the reality is that they all tap in to the same community, for the most part, and help to bolster interest outside of the season. This is good for advertising sponsors, good for merchandise, and good for enthusiasm once the new season starts.
English Premier League still attracts the best athletes in the world
Men train from a very young age to become the best they can be. The English Premier League helps to bolster talent from youth on up to ensure that the best are always on display when the professional season starts. It is a practice that the league endorses and something that can actually attract parents to the sport, even if they have had no previous interest in football per se.
Competition attracts more attention
While there are many great rivalries inside of the English Premier League, the professional leagues from other nations also take a great deal of pride in their teams, and that international rivalry is good for EPL football overall because it builds national pride and adds one more thing that nationalists can brag about. What’s good for countrymen is good for the country. And the English Premier League is both.
