Barclays Premier League Football, perhaps the most popular sports league in the rest of the world, includes Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and West Ham.

sorry to be pedantic, but there is no 'British Soccer League'. Britain consists of four different countries, each of which has it's own football league. NBC will be broadcasting the English Premier League. thanks.
