Every year on the final day of the Barclays Premier League season — “Survival Sunday” — the 20 teams play each other in a frantic, 10-match race. The final day of the Barclays Premier League season has drama and passion for all fans and teams. While Manchester United is the league’s newly crowned champion, and the bottom three teams — Wigan Athletic, Reading and Queens Park Rangers — face relegation to the lower division, the battle for European qualification spots lives until the last whistle on Survival Sunday.
The top four clubs in the Barclays Premier League earn UEFA Champions League qualification, receiving a potential reward of $75 million and the right to play in the world’s most prestigious club tournament. Pending the results of other domestic competitions, the fifth, sixth and seventh places in the Premier League also hold much significance. Once Sunday’s results are in, the holders of those spots qualify for the UEFA Europa League.
Following the matches on the Fox networks, the series finale of Goals on Sunday will air May 19 at 1:30pm ET on FOX Soccer, with a feature on Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs, as well as an interview with David Beckham following his announcement to retire at the end of the season.
