Watch LaLiga on ESPN

ESPN has two of the cornerstones of European club soccer–Bundesliga and La Liga. While ESPN has picked up a plethora of rights in the last two years from Scotland, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark and many other countries, the acquisition of Spain’s LaLiga rights is a major coup for the broadcaster particularly because the league and beIN SPORTS were locked into an exclusive rights deal through 2024.

    La Liga History

    A Getxo merchant and investor called Jose Maria Acha first suggested the concept of a single Spanish top-division league in April 1928. A number of arguments over the scope and regulations of the league culminated in the 1929 founding of La Liga. Maria Acha deserves recognition for being the league’s founding figure and for starting the conversation. Presently, there was only one tier, the Primera División, and 10 teams competed in it. Three of the original ten clubs from the Primera División—Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Athletic Club
    —have remained in the top division ever since 1929. There would be other situations in the future when the number of clubs expanded. After peaking at 20 clubs in 1987, it has stayed there with the exception of a brief stint (1995–1997), when it was 22 clubs. The first and second divisions were established simultaneously in 1929. In 1977, the third division was established with the creation of Segunda División B to replace Tercera División. Because of this, the fourth level is now known as Tercera División. It was Barcelona’s proud moment to become the first La Liga winners. The 1929-30 season was a watershed moment in Barcelona’s history, as their outstanding play laid the groundwork for their eventual win. The team went on to win a slew more championships after this win, solidifying their place in Spanish soccer lore.

    Why is it called ‘La Liga’?

    There has been a long-standing reputation for the La Liga as the premier soccer competition in Spain. When it was first established in 1928, it was called the “Liga Nacional de Fútbol Profesional” (National Professional Soccer League). The original name didn’t remain in use much, as it was changed to “La Liga,” which means “The League” in English. A member of the governing committee suggested changing the name because they found ‘Liga Nacional de Fútbol Profesional’ to be too complicated and lengthy. La Liga is the present title because they wanted something more straightforward and easy to understand.

    Rise of La Liga in 20th century

    With its spectacular matches and transcendent players, La Liga has become a worldwide sensation, captivating fans on every continent. A long list of famous faces has walked the La Liga stage, including Johan Cruyff, Ferenc Puskas, Alfredo Di Stéfano, and, more recently, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. From 1936 until 1939, the league was canceled due to the Spanish Civil War. The famous Santiago Bernabeu took over as Real Madrid coach in the 1950s, and the club began its period of supremacy. At the same time, a new soccer style known as “Total Soccer” came into being in the 1970s, with Johan Cruyff and Barcelona serving as its greatest examples.

    La Liga: 21st century and modern history

    A duopoly emerged in the new millennium that would change the way soccer measured individual greatness. La Liga took a new turn because of the animosity between Real Madrid and Barcelona star Lionel Messi, two of the sport’s all-time greats. They increased the league’s worldwide popularity with their record-breaking feats, record-scoring exploits, and exciting El Clasico clashes
    . Even in modern times, La Liga remains a showcase for soccer greatness, giving both up-and-coming players and long-time greats a chance to make their imprint. Beyond its already stellar reputation, the league has become a cultural landmark because of its dedication to innovation and the active engagement of its fans. Four clubs from La Liga now advance to the UEFA Champions League, with the fifth-place finisher earning a spot in the UEFA Europa League (the Copa del Rey winner also receives a spot). Conversely, the three clubs finishing worst in Primera División (places 18–20) are sent down to Segunda División.
