2022-23 Premier League – Location-map, with 3 charts (Attendance; Seasons-in-1st-Division; English titles list).
The map is a basic location-map, with an inset map of Greater London. Also shown are small labels which point out the three promoted clubs (Fulham, Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest). And there are three charts.

The Attendance chart, at top-centre of the map page, shows 4 things for each of the 20 current Premier League clubs…A) 2021-22 finish (with promotions noted). B) 2021-22 average attendance [from home league matches]. C) Stadium capacity [2021-22]. D) Percent-capacity [2021-22].

At the right-hand side of the map page are two more charts. The chart at the top-right shows Seasons-in-1st-Division for the 20 current Premier League clubs. Also shown are consecutive top-flight-seasons, and first season of current spell. (Counting 2022-23, there have been 124 seasons of English 1st division football; the English 1st division was established in 1888-89, with seasons played from 1888-89 to 1914-15; from 1919-20 to 1938-39; and from 1946-47 to 2022-23.)

Everton have played the most seasons in the top flight – 120 – and Everton have been in the top tier without relegation since 1954-55 (69 straight seasons). There are three other clubs that have played over 100 seasons in the English top flight: Aston Villa (109 seasons), Liverpool (108 seasons), and Arsenal (106 seasons). Arsenal are the club with the longest spell in the top tier – 98 seasons (since 1919-20). Of the 3 newly-promoted sides, Fulham return back to the top flight after one year. Bournemouth return back after two years. And Nottingham Forest are playing top flight football for the first time in 22 years.

The final chart, at the right-hand foot of the map-page, shows the all-time English Title Winners list (1889 to 2022/ 123 titles). Manchester United has won the most English titles, with 20 (last in 2013); Liverpool has won the second-most titles, with 19 (last in 2020). Arsenal have won the third-most titles, with 13 (last in 2004). Everton have won the fourth-most titles, with 9 (last in 1987). Reigning champions Manchester City have won the fifth-most titles, with 8. Twenty four clubs have won the English title. The most recent club to win their first title was Leicester City, in 2016.

Below are illustrations for the 3 promoted clubs (Fulham, Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest)…
