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 were crowned La Liga champions in 1930.

Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Sevilla were among the teams who won La Liga after the Civil War. 

In 1953, one of the best players in the world was Argentinian striker Alfredo Di Stefano. He 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. Di Stefano’s goals won Real Madrid their first La Liga title in 21 years, and then helped Real Madrid to dominate the early years of the European Cup, the predecessor of the UEFA Champions League.

In the early 1950s, the greatest footballer in the world was the Hungarian Ferenc Puskas, instigator of the “Marvelous Magyars”. The Hungarian national football team had transformed the way the game was played, highlighted by their 6-3 demolition of England at Wembley in 1953 in a game known as “The Match Of The Century.” 

In 1958 Puskas joined Real Madrid with the Di Stefano and Puskas partnership proving unstoppable, securing Real Madrid another two European Cups. 

Their on-field chemistry is highlighted by the 1960 final against Eintracht Frankfurt at Glasgow’s Hampden Park, which Madrid won 7-3, with three goals from Di Stefano, and four from Puskas.

After winning the first five European Cups, Real Madrid would win it again in 1966, but had to wait 32 years before their next success. 

In 1971 manager Rinus Michels joined Barcelona and set about implementing his methods and theories within the club. In 1973, Michels was instrumental in bringing Dutch superstar Johan Cruyff to the club, and in 1974 Barcelona won La Liga for the first time since 1960. 

Michels would leave the club soon after, but Cruyff would stay for five seasons and begin a bond with Barcelona that would last a lifetime. 

When Cruyff returned to Barcelona in 1988, it was as manager. He led them to their most successful period in history, winning La Liga in 1990, 91, 92, 93 and 94, and in 1992 taking Barca to their first ever European Cup victory. 

Cruyff would become a member of the Barcelona board and a major influence at the club until his death in 2016. A key member of Cruyff’s Barcelona team was Pep Guardiola, who would continue to enforce Cruyff’s teachings during his own incredibly successful time as Barcelona manager. 

Real Madrid would break the transfer world record multiple times, beginning with Luis Figo who they purchased from Barcelona in 2000 for a word-record £37 million. 

They broke that record by buying Zinedine Zidane (£46.6 million in 2001), then Kaka (£56 million in 2009), Cristiano Ronaldo (£80 million in 2009) and finally Gareth Bale (£86 million in 2013).

Real Madrid have won six Champions Leagues since 1998, including three of the last four, bringing their total to 13.
