The 2010–11 La Liga season (known as the Liga BBVA for sponsorship reasons) was the 80th since its establishment. The campaign began on 28 August 2010 and ended on 21 May 2011. A total of 20 teams contested the league, 17 of which already contested in the 2009–10 season and three of which were promoted from the Segunda División. In addition, a new match ball – the Nike Total 90 Tracer – served as the official ball for all matches.[6]

Defending champions Barcelona secured their 3rd consecutive and 21st La Liga title after a 1–1 tie with Levante on 11 May 2011.[7][8] The result gave Barcelona a 6-point lead with two matches remaining which, combined with their better head-to-head record with Real Madrid, ensured that they finished top of the table.[9] Barcelona led the table since defeating Madrid 5–0 on 23 November 2010. Since then, they lost only one match en route to winning the title.[10] It was the third straight title for Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola.

The season was again dominated by Barcelona and Real Madrid, with 2nd place Madrid 21 points ahead of 3rd place Valencia.[11] Having encountered each other in the Champions League semifinals and the Copa del Rey final, the top two teams met 4 times in 17 days, for a total of 5 times this season.[12]

The most significant managerial change prior to the start of the season was 2-time Champions League-winning José Mourinho taking over at Real Madrid.[13]

Teams[edit]

Real Valladolid, CD Tenerife and Xerez CD were relegated to the Segunda División after finishing the 2009–10 season in the bottom three places. Tenerife and Xerez made their immediate return to the second level after just one year in the Spanish top flight, while Valladolid ended a three-year tenure in La Liga.

The relegated teams were replaced by 2009–10 Segunda División champions Real Sociedad from San Sebastián, runners-up Hércules CF from Alicante and Levante UD from Valencia. Hércules returned to the highest Spanish football league for the first time after 13 years, while Real Sociedad and Levante terminated their second-level status after three and two years, respectively.

Fair Play award[edit]

This award is given annually since 1999 to the team with the best fair play during the season. This ranking takes into account aspects[35] such as cards, suspension of matches, audience behaviour and other penalties. This section not only aims to know this aspect, but also serves to break the tie in teams that are tied in all the other rules: points, head-to-head, goal difference and goals scored.
