The Segunda División [seˈɣunda ðiβiˈsjon] (Second Division) is the lower tier of the two professional football leagues in Spain. From the season 2008–09 onwards, for sponsorship reasons the official name is Liga Adelante[1] [liɣa aðeˈlante].

History[edit]

  • On 16 August 2006, the LFP reached an agreement with the banking group BBVA for sponsorship of the Segunda División renaming the league Liga BBVA.
  • On 4 June 2008, the league was renamed to Liga Adelante, after the BBVA slogan, "Adelante." ("Go ahead" in Spanish), because of the BBVA sponsorship extending to La Liga, which carried the Liga BBVA name.[1]

League format[edit]

As of 2010-11 the league contains 22 teams that play each other home and away for a 42 match season. Each year three teams are promoted to La Liga. The top two teams earn an automatic promotion. The third team to be promoted is the winner of a play-off between the next four best qualified teams in positions 3 through 6 (reserve teams are not eligible for promotion). The play-offs comprise two-legged semi-finals followed by a two-legged final. The bottom four are relegated to Segunda División B.[2]

All-time standings[edit]

The All-Time Segunda Table is an overall record of all match results, points, and goals of every team that has played in La Segunda since its inception in 1929. The table that follows is accurate as of the end of the 2012-13 season.
