George.  The 2002–03 season saw the first real contenders from outside the Addis Ababa push for a Premier League title. The title race came down to the last day with St. George needing a win against rivals Ethiopian Coffee to secure their 4th Premier League title (19th overall title). Second place side Arba Minch Textiles, based in southern city of Arba Minch, was looking to win its first title but needed a St. lose to do so. In the end however, St. George was able to win their match and retain the title but the strong display by Arba Minch Textiles showed that teams outside the capital were indeed ready to contend in the top league once again.
 In October 2020, SuperSport secured exclusive broadcast rights to the Ethiopian Premier League.  Champions In total 18 clubs have won the top division of Ethiopian football, including titles before the inception of the Ethiopian Premier League, namely in the Division one. This list includes clubs from Eritrea (Asmara [includes Hamassien], Embassoria [includes Akale Guzay], Tele SC) which played their football in Ethiopia until the creation of the Eritrean Premier League in 1994.
The federation has threatens to take legal measures against clubs who don't cooperate in the matter.  In June 2017 as part of the Ethiopian Football Federation's digitization process the rights to broadcast the premier league were opened for bidding to five companies including Kana TV, ENN, Walta TV and Chinese Pay television broadcaster, StarTimes.  However, the Federation was not satisfied with their income distribution statements in the proposals and negotiations stalled.

The following year the league decided to increase the number of teams to 10, a year that ended with perennial favorites St. George S. C lifting their first Premier League trophy (16th title overall). George would go on to repeat as champions the following year (1999-00 season).  The 2000–01 season was a special one in the league thanks in large part to the offensive display of Ethio Electric striker Yordanos Abay. Abay scored what was then a record 24 goals during his league campaign helping Ethio Electric to its second Premier League title (3rd overall title). His record would stand 16 years until being surpassed by Dedebit striker Getaneh Kebede who scored 25 goals during the 2016-17 season. The following season (2001-02 season) Ethio Electric were picked by many to repeat as champions, but fell short of expectation by finishing behind eventual champions St.
 The 2003–04 season turned out to be breakthrough year for teams outside of Addis Ababa as Hawassa City S. C., led by their captain Kamal Ahmed, were able to lift the Premier League trophy for the first time in their history. The title race once again came down to the last day as Hawassa City had to beat Nyala S. to fend off the likes of Ethiopian Coffee S. and Trans Ethiopia for the Premier League title.  The following two season were once again dominated by St. as they were able to lift their 5th and 6th Premier League titles (20th and 21st titles overall). The start of the 2006–07 season saw the league expand to 16 clubs.
However, the liberalization of the television market in recent years has allowed for informal transmission of live matches, especially on regional channels such as Amhara TV in the north and Debub TV in the south. Recently the Ethiopian super cup final was televised on ENN TV, a private Ethiopian satellite channel, for the first time. However, these live transmissions have come under much scrutiny from the federation as it claims that neither the clubs nor the broadcasters are informing the proper authority.

However, St. George would come back the next season and win the title once again in 2011-12. George's attempt at a repeat would be thwarted though as the next season Dedebit F. would instead be crown champions for the first time in their history. Starting from the 2013-14 season to the 2016-17 season St. would do something that has only been done once before in first division football in Ethiopia and that was winning 4 titles in a row.
Notably the 2016-17 season was the first to include 16 clubs, after the Federation decided to expand the league from the previous total of 14 clubs. In turn only two clubs were relegated from the league at the end of the previous season (2015-16) and they were replaced by four promoted clubs from the Higher League in order to form the new 16 club Ethiopian Premier League.  On May 2, 2018, the league was suspended by the Ethiopian Football Federation (EFF) after a referee was attacked during a match between Welwalo Adigrat University and Defense.
