They replaced Eibar, Valladolid, and Huesca who were moved down to the Segunda División this year. Let’s take a look at the 20 teams competing in this year’s La Liga season along with their captains:
- Alavés – Víctor Laguardia

La Liga teams compete in stadiums throughout Spain. Some of the largest venues include Camp Nou in Barcelona which holds over 99,000 fans and Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid which holds over 85,000 fans. Imagine close to 100k screaming fans at an NFL game in the United States and then multiply that several times to get the excitement of a La Liga game when Barcelona and Real Madrid are on the field.
Broadcasters for the La Liga 2021-2022 Season
La Liga is popular around the world. As you might guess there are a few very large broadcasters covering the season. Coverage in the United States, France, and several other countries will be broadcast on beIN Sports. Viewers in the United Kingdom can watch coverage on Sky Sports. Telefónica will broadcast the matches in Spain. All of these channels are premium but there are ways to access them from outside their normal viewing areas by using a VPN service.
I recommend you check out Sling TV which has a base package of over 20+ channels including ESPN and ESPN2 for $20 a month. You can add a sports package containing beIN Sports, Universal Sports Network. Univision Deportes, and several more sports channels for an extra $5 a month. Than means for $25 a month you can enjoy popular channels and watch La Liga matches. If you haven’t tried it yet then you can sign up for a 7 day free trial. Sling TV is restricted to users in the United States. If you plan to travel outside the US or live abroad, you will want to connect to a VPN server in the US. This will give you an IP address in the US which opens access to Sling TV and other popular channels.
Enjoy all the excitement during the 2021-2022 La Liga season. Please share this post with your friends so they can enjoy the matches from anywhere in the world with a VPN. Follow us @VPNFan for the latest deals and guides.
