2021-22 Premeir League: Location-map, with League History chart

2021-22 Premier League: Location-map, with League History chart & English Title Winners chart
This is a new template, which features a standard location-map, plus a chart which shows the League History of all the clubs in the division. As well as showing the locations and crests of the 20 Premier League clubs this season, the main map includes the 58 Unitary authorities of England, and shows the major Urban Areas of England and Wales.

The League History chart lists the total seasons that each club has played in the 1st level [Premier League], the 2nd level [EFL Championship], the 3rd level [EFL League One], and the 4th level [EFL League Two]. Alongside each column there is also listed the most recent season each club has played in each level.

The League History chart also shows the total League seasons of each club (in the dark-blue column). (Total League seasons is: all Football League seasons plus all Premier League seasons that a club has played.) 2021-22 is the 123rd season of League football in England: 1888-89 to 1914-15; 1919-20 to 1938-39; 1947-48 to 2021-22. There were 12 founding members of the Football League in 1888-89, and seeing how one of those clubs is defunct (Accrington FC), and seeing how one of those clubs has been relegated out of the Football League (Notts County), that means there are only 10 clubs in England that have played all 123 seasons of League football. Four of those clubs play in the Premier League this season…Aston Villa, Burnley, Everton, Wolverhampton.

I have also made posts similar to this one, of the 2nd division and the 3rd division. Links to those posts are below…
EFL Championship 21/22 map & chart, w/ the 3 promoted clubs (Hull, Peterborough, Blackpool).
EFL League One 21/22 map & chart, w/ the 4 promoted clubs (Cheltenham, Cambridge, Bolton, Morecambe).

•I also earlier posted a brief look at the 2 clubs in 2021 that were promoted from the 5th tier into the 4th tier (Hartlepool, Sutton).

The only two differences between this 1st division map & chart here, and the ones I made for the 2nd and 3rd divisons are this…
1). In the chart at the top-right, all the 20 current Premier League clubs are listed by total seasons played in the 1st division, and not by total seasons played in the League. It just made sense to do it that way.
2). I made a chart showing the 24 English Title Winners (1889 to 2021). That chart is at the bottom-right of the map page.

    The three clubs promoted to the Premier League in 2021…Norwich City, Watford, Brentford…
    Norwich City: promoted back to the 1st division after 1 year.

2021-22 UEFA Champions League Group Stage: Location-map, with chart showing UEFA CL Group Stage appearances & titles for the 32 clubs



By Bill Turianski on the 7th of September 2021; twitter.com/billsportsmaps.

The map is a standard location-map showing the locations of the 32 qualified teams in the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League Group Stage.

There are several other aspects to the map page…
1). Groups A through H
At the very top of the map are the eight 4-team groups of the Group Stage, arranged with with each club’s home-country flag shown alongside.

2). Allocations vs. Qualified teams, by country
At the left side of the map page, Allocations (by member-nations) are shown, via a list of the top 41 UEFA Member-Associations in their current [2021-22] Country Co-efficient ranking. I stopped at 41 (out of the 55 total UEFA member-nations) because #41 is the current ranking of Moldova, and Sheriff Tiraspol of Moldova was the club from the lowest-ranked country to qualify for this season’s tournament. This is the first time a club from Moldova has qualified for the elite competition that is the Champions League. But it is not really any sort of fairy-tale story of a David making it into the realm of the Goliaths. Because Sheriff Tiraspol is a club from the breakaway state of Transnistria. And Sheriff Tiraspol only got to the Champions League thanks to their owners, the controversial Sheriff Holding, a company which has an extensive and extra-legal monopoly in this isolated and internationally-unrecognized breakaway state. The following link is to a Twitter thread from the Moldova-born @SlavaMalamud…

3). 2021-22 UEFA Champions League Group Stage: List of 2021-22 UEFA Champions League Group Stage teams by CL GS appearances, including European titles…
At the upper right-hand side of the map page, all 32 clubs in the Group Stage are shown, by total Group Stage appearances, with consecutive appearances -/- or, previous appearance. Please note: the Group Stage aspect of this competition did not begin with the re-branding of the tournament in 1992-93…it began one season earlier. Here…1991-92 UEFA European Cup (en.wikipedia.org)…the last European Cup tournament in 1991-92 featured a Group Stage (of 8 teams; three of which are in the 2021-22 iteration – FC Barcelona, SL Benfica, and Dynamo Kyiv). Wikipedia doesn’t include the 1991-92 tournament in their total-Group-Stage-appearances list {here}. But RSSSF does {here: Champions League – All-Time Table [(1991/92-2013/14]}. The competition didn’t change with the re-branding from the European Cup to the Champions League in 1992-93…the name just changed. Yes, the competition has evolved, but it had already evolved into a Group Stage, one year before the re-brand.




5). UEFA European Titles list
At the lower-right-hand corner of the map page is a list showing all of the 22 European title-winning clubs, listed by total titles won. (66 European titles: European Cup titles, 1955-56 to 1991-92; Champions League titles, 1992-93 to 2020-21.)

Here is the breakdown of UEFA European titles by Country (1956-2021)…
Spain: 18 titles, won by 2 clubs. (Real Madrid, 13 titles; FC Barcelona, 5 titles.)
England: 14 titles, won by 5 clubs. (Liverpool, 6 titles; Manchester United, 3 titles; Chelsea, 2 titles; Nottingham Forest, 2 titles; Aston Villa, 1 title.)
Italy, 12 titles, won by 3 clubs. (Milan, 7 titles; Internazionale, 3 titles; Juventus, 2 titles.)
Germany: 8 titles, won by 3 clubs. (Bayern Munich, 6 titles; Borussia Dortmund, 1 title; Hamburger SV, 1 title.)
Netherlands: 6 titles, won by 3 clubs. (Ajax, 4 titles; PSV Eindhoven, 1 title; Feyenoord, 1 title.)
Portugal: 4 titles, won by 2 clubs. (FC Porto, 2 titles; Benfica, 2 titles.)
France: 1 title. (Olympique Marseille.)
Yugoslavia: 1 title. (Red Star Belgrade.)
Romania: 1 title. (Steaua Bucharest.)
Scotland: 1 title. (Celtic.)
