The 2012–13 Segunda División season (known as the Liga Adelante for sponsorship reasons) was the 82nd since its establishment. The season started on 17 August 2012 and the league phase of 42 rounds ended on 9 June 2013. The entire season ended on 22 June 2013 with the promotion play-off finals.[1][2]

Teams[edit]

A total of 22 teams contested the league, including 15 sides from the 2011–12 season, four promoted from the 2011–12 Segunda División B and three relegated from 2011–12 La Liga.

Villarreal CF, Sporting de Gijón and Racing de Santander were the teams which were relegated from La Liga the previous season. Villarreal was relegated after 12 years in La Liga, Sporting de Gijón returned to the Segunda División after a four-year tenure in La Liga, while Racing de Santander ended ten consecutive seasons in La Liga, the longest period in its history. Deportivo de La Coruña was promoted the previous season and made their immediate return to the top level, Celta de Vigo after five years in the Segunda División, and the other team promoted to La Liga as play-off winner was Valladolid after two years of absence.

The teams relegated the previous season were Villarreal B, Gimnàstic de Tarragona, Alcoyano and Cartagena. These four were replaced by four Segunda División B teams: Real Madrid Castilla (group 1 champions and 2ªB champions), Mirandés (group 2 champions and 2ªB runners-up) and the winners of third round play-offs Ponferradina and Lugo. Ponferradina made an immediate return to the second level, while Real Madrid Castilla and Lugo returned to it respectively after 5 and 19 years. Finally, Mirandés made their debut in the second level.

Villarreal B did not finish in the relegation places, but Villareal were relegated from Liga BBVA, and the rule of Spain is that two teams of the same owner cannot play in the same league, forcing Villarreal B's relegation.
