The Barclaycard Premiership attracts some of the players from throughout the World. In fact 101 Premier League players represented their country in Japan and Korea and since then Senegal's World Cup star El Hadji Diouf has signed for Liverpool, while Arsenal have landed World Cup-winner Gilberto of Brazil. To see such players competing alongside an array of young England talent such as Manchester United's new signing Rio Ferdinand. West Ham's Joe Cole and Newcastle's midfield star Kieron Dyer is a real treat for the supporters, who get to watch the best players in the world week-in, week-out.

This season will also see two new clubs making their debut in the Barclaycard Premiership and a Merlin sticker collection. Indeed, the competition will now have more local derbies on offer than ever before. For Kevin Keegan's Manchester City it's a welcome return to the top-flight while for West Bromwich Albion and Birmingham City the Barclaycard Premiership offers a new experience that i hope they both enjoy.

Whether you're new to the Barclaycard Premiership or a seasoned follower, enjoy all the action with Merlin's 2003 edition of the Official F.A. Premier League sticker collection. There's everthing you need to know about clubs along with features and in-depth statistics to guide you through the season."
