The 2012–13 Premier League (known as the Barclays Premier League for sponsorship reasons) is the 21st season of the Premier League, the English professional league for association football clubs, since its establishment in 1992. The fixture schedule was released on 18 June 2012. The season began on 18 August 2012 and will end on 19 May 2013.

Manchester City are the defending champions, having won their first Premier League title the previous season. This was their first top division league title since the 1967–68 season.

Teams

A total of 20 teams will contest the league, including 17 sides from the 2011–12 season and three promoted from the 2011–12 Football League Championship.

Relegation for Wolverhampton Wanderers to the 2012–13 Football League Championship was confirmed on 22 April 2012, ending a three-season Premier League tenure. Blackburn Rovers were relegated after a 1–0 defeat against Wigan Athletic on 7 May 2012, ending an eleven-season tenure in top-flight football. The final team to be relegated from the 2011–12 Premier League was Bolton Wanderers on 13 May 2012, the final day of the season, also after eleven seasons in the top flight. For only the second time in the history of the Premier League, all three sides who were promoted from the 2010–11 Football League Championship survived and will compete in this season.

Reading (as Champions) and Southampton (as runners-up) secured direct promotion to the Premier League from the 2011–12 Football League Championship. Reading will return to the Premier League after an absence of four years, while Southampton make a comeback to the highest tier after making two successive promotions and seven seasons in the leagues below. The third promoted team was decided in a four-team play-off between the Championship teams ranked third through to sixth. Ultimately, third-placed West Ham United defeated fifth-placed Blackpool in the Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium on 19 May 2012. West Ham returned to the Premier League after only one season of absence.
