Spanish top-flight champions Real Madrid are set to defend their La Liga title, with the next season beginning on September 12.

With the 2019/20 season done and dusted, we can all look forward to more Spanish football action with the official first kickoff in the La Liga 2020/21 season set for September 12.

The next big thing to look out for right before the football action however, is the transfer window happening a few days before the season starts in September. Will your predictions come true? Who knows - but one thing’s for sure, the buzz around transfers is always worth paying attention to, especially when your favorite teams are involved.

As a refresher, the three teams that were relegated at the end of the 2019/20 season (Leganés, Real Mallorca, RCD Espanyol) will be replaced by Cadiz CF, Huesca and Real Zaragoza.

However, we’ll all have to hold our breaths just a little longer as full fixtures are set to be released in the last week of August 2020. If you’re as much of a football fan, I’d say it's definitely worth the wait!

When does the 2020/21 La aliga?

La Liga new season will start on Saturday September 12 2020.

When will the 2020/21 La Liga finish?

The season is scheduled to finish on Sunday May 23, 2021 - just in time for Euro 2020.

Look at just finished 2019/20 season

In late April in Madrid, Spain - one can just imagine the hushed murmurs in the corridors of the La Liga office about a premature shutdown of the 2019/20 season, which had only 11 games left to play. Fans eager to watch teams like Barcelona and Real Madrid slug it out for the championship were to be disappointed when the news broke that all games were to be postponed until a later date.

With almost all of Europe under government-enforced lock-down, it was only a matter of time before the good news came - and it did. On the 8th June 2020, Spanish president Pedro Sánchez gave the green light for the return of professional football, with the first game of the resumed La Liga season being Sevilla vs Real Betis on the 11th June.

Out of all the five biggest leagues in Europe, the one country that wanted live football back the most was definitely Spain. The entire Spanish football industry creates about 180,000 jobs for the population, so getting football back into Spanish life was a top priority and one that implemented the strictest safety measures to prevent any further spikes in pandemic infection rates in an already badly-hit country.

Fan favorites Real Madrid closed off the 2019/20 season for a record 34th time being crowned champions of the 89th La Liga Santander (key sponsor) season since its establishment. Under the close supervision of football legend and current manager Zenedine Zidane, the team known affectionately as Los Blancos managed to snatch away the title from reigning champions Barcelona after a 2-1 win over Villareal at the finals held in Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, which also happens to be their home ground.
