La Liga, The Spanish Soccer League
La Liga, or the Primera Division if you’re in Spain, is the top level of the Spanish soccer system
and is one of the oldest European soccer leagues, founded 92 years ago in 1929. The season runs
from August to May, and like most of the other European soccer leagues, operates on a double round-robin
format where they play each of the other 19 teams both home and away. You can bet on La Liga almost
year-round with each team playing 38 games in total.
The La Liga operates much like other top-level European leagues where they use a system
of promotion and relegation. The three lowest place teams head to the Segunda division, and the top
two teams from the Segunda Division are then promoted to La Liga.
