COPA DEL REY

Begins 19th October

HISTORY AND FORMAT

La Liga, the elite competition in Spain, kicked off in 1929. The league is known for the high level of technical ability of its players, as well as its enormous success in European competition. La Liga is ranked second after the Premier League according to UEFA coefficient.

20 teams fight it out every year for the Campeonato. The top four qualify automatically for the Champions League, whilst the bottom three are relegated to the Segunda División.

Real Madrid are the most successful club in the history of La Liga. They claimed their 35th league title last year, as well as a record 14th European Cup. Real Betis won the Copa Del Rey in what would have been a fairytale ending for Joaquín, had he not decided to postpone his retirement. Lionel Messi is the top goal scorer in La Liga history by a massive margin with 474 goals.
