The Campeonato Nacional de Promotion, commonly called as LaLiga and officially also as La Liga Santander due to commercial rights reasons, is the second highest professional football division in Spain. It is also the most popular and most attended club league in Spain. La Liga is governed by a part of the FIFA (Federation of International Football Associations) governing body, the FIFA (Federation of International Football Associations) Youth Development and Training Program. This means that it has grown tremendously since its establishment in 1954.
In its history, La Liga organizes about sixty matches throughout the year, making it one of the most active clubs in the Spanish football league system outside of the English Premier League, among English and European based leagues. The most well known teams participating in the La Liga are Real Madrid, Barcelona, Deportivo La Coruna, Sporting Lisbon, Sevilla, Almeria, Villarreal, Rayados de Aro and FC Barcelona. Recently though, the trend of switching teams has become more frequent. This has been made possible by the introduction of a "moderation" system that allows two or more teams of similar form and ability to qualify for the same competition. It has led to an increase in competitiveness that has seen some teams qualify for the competition from relatively lower positions. LaLiga has thus grown considerably in popularity over the years, despite the difficulties of translation for many who do not speak the language fluently.
La Liga is split into three different divisions: the amateur league, the regional group of clubs belonging to the association of the Spanish Football Federation (Spanish Association of Football) and the top division of the laigue (a division specifically for players). There are also smaller competitions for the promotion of clubs from lower division to the next level. This type of weighted qualification system ensures that all the teams playing in the competition have equal chances of reaching the finals. As well as this, there are various other benefits and advantages for teams playing in the LaLiga:
Distribution of points between teams: The structure of the league means that there are certain geographical areas within which a team is expected to win its games. The distribution of points between teams within the league helps keep the quality of play high. It also prevents imbalance between teams, as well as promoting competition within the league. Teams are not able to attract players or supporters from other teams by simply paying them less than their opponents. Points are distributed through a system of skill allocation.
The 2021/10 season was the first season in which all of the qualifying rounds were played. The format has been changed as it gave the runners-up extra incentive to win the competition, with the possibility of bonus points being added. Now the runners-up will receive one point for each game they win and three points for winning the knockouts. This means that the competition is even more balanced, helping promote a high quality บอลออนไลน์ competition.
There is two World Cup Qualifiers taking place in the Spanish region of the Mediterranean coast. Barcelona are set to face off against Mexico in the semis, with both needing a win to book their place in the summer World Cup finals. Should the Mexicans win, then Spain will only need one point to book their place at the finals in Morocco. If either team wins on the other, then that team will be considered the Spanish champions and will lift the trophy for the second consecutive year. This is also the fourth World Cup that the Spanish have contested since the tournament was introduced in 1988, as well as the eleventh ever.
