La Liga History

The first season of Spanish top flight football began in 1928 and the first champions were Barcelona. Real Madrid claimed their first wins in the competition in 1932 and 1933, while Athletic Bilbao – in a period of dominance that would take 50 years to replicate – were crowned La Liga champions in 1930, 31, 34 and 36. After Bilbao lifted the trophy in 1936, the Spanish Civil War brought an end to the Primera Division for three years. 

Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Sevilla were among the teams who won La Liga after the Civil War, with Atletico finishing first four times. 

In 1953, one of the best players in the world was Argentinian striker Alfredo Di Stefano, who was all set to join Barcelona, a move which was initially blocked by the Spanish FA. In the ensuing confusion, Di Stefano joined Real Madrid, becoming their greatest ever player.

Real Madrid’s next major acquisition was nothing short of genius. In the early 1950s, the greatest footballer in the world by some distance had been the Hungarian Ferenc Puskas, and La Liga became the domain of Madrid, with Real and occasionally Atletico finishing top season after season. 

Rinus Michels, the founding father of “Total Football”, joined Barcelona in 1971, and in 1974 Barcelona won La Liga for the first time since 1960. Johan Cruyff led Barcelona to their most successful period ever, winning La Liga in 1990, 91, 92, 93 and 94, and in 1992 taking Barca to their first ever European Cup victory. 

The Champions League has continued to be dominated by Madrid and Barcelona, while the Europa League has dominance too. Atletico, Valencia, Bilbao, Espanyol, and Villarreal all reached the final or semifinal of Europe’s two biggest competitions in recent years. 

La Liga boasts the two greatest football teams of all time – Real Madrid and Barcelona – as well as superb sides like Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia and Villarreal, teams that would be title contenders in any other major league.
