Scottish Premier League and Premier League Sports Blog

By: Marcia Henin

Scottish Premier League (SPL) is a professional league competition for football clubs of the prime level in the Scottish football league system. It holds the tenth position in the UEFA rankings of European League. This position in the European league depends on the performance of member clubs in the European competitions. The current champion of the SPL title is Celtic.

In 1998, the football clubs in the Premier Division decided to separate from the Scottish Football League and to create the Scottish Premier League to get the maximum share of the league sponsorship money. The 12 clubs that now play in the leagues are Aberdeen FC, Celtic FC, Dundee United FC, Falkirk Gretna Heart of Midlothian FC, Hibernian FC, Inverness CT, Kilmarnock FC, Motherwell FC, Rangers FC, and St. Mirren.

These clubs of Scottish Premier League have largely continued to be on their own rules. Aberdeen got their third dressing kit, which reminds that they were called once as The Wasps, whereas the Falkirk's new home kit honors their Scottish Cup win of 1957.

People usually refer the Premier League as the Barclays Premier League for certain financial reasons. The league is the nation's major football championship. Twenty clubs play in this League, and SPL is one prime member of this championship.

For Fans of SPL:

The ideal way to know the venues and scores of SPL is to browse through the extremely interactive and high-speed web site or sports blog of SPL. This official web site tells about everything that a fan might ask in respect of SPL events and schedules, whereas the sports blog provides the opportunity for the visitors to blog.

The site also offers betting facilities for the online gamblers. They can bet on their favorite clubs in the League or purchase their favorite team's products online. Merchandise arrays anywhere from charming women's outfit decorated with the team symbol or a heavy jersey of men's with the team's cap.

With the fame of the innovative SPL, the League chairperson Lex gold, has suggested for a SPL too. However, this idea seems to be unpopular among the fans of both Scottish football League and SPL.
