The Premier League is the pinnacle of English football, with more than three billion people watching it worldwide each year and £7.6 billion generated for the UK economy throughout the season.
With all this influence and possibility for promotion, it can promote wider conversations than ones heard on the pitch.
Southampton Football Club has accepted this responsibility, putting climate change and sustainability firmly at the forefront of its operations.
I spoke with Operations and Sustainability Manager at the club, Caroline Carlin, on the strides the Saints have taken off the pitch to reduce their carbon footprint and amplify the climate conversation.
She explained how the club has not only taken action on its own emissions but also looks to educate the next generation of children in the city, with tree planting schemes across schools.
