The 2019–20 Segunda División season, also known as La Liga 1|2|3 for sponsorship reasons,[1] will be the 89th since its establishment.

Teams[edit]

Promotion and relegation (pre-season)[edit]

A total of 22 teams will contest the league, including 16 sides from the 2018–19 season, three relegated from the 2018–19 La Liga, and four promoted from the 2018–19 Segunda División B. This will include the winners of the play-offs.

Teams relegated to Segunda División B

The first team to be relegated from Segunda División were Reus, expelled on 18 January 2019, due to their failure to pay their players. This ended a three-year spell in Segunda División.[2] The second team to be relegated were Gimnàstic, who were relegated on 5 May 2019 after Albacete drew 0−0 against Numancia, ending a four-year run in the second division.[3] The third relegated club was Córdoba, in a 0−1 away loss at Las Palmas on 12 May 2019. They ended a 12-year-spell in professional football in Spain, with one of those seasons in La Liga.[4] The fourth and final relegated team was Rayo Majadahonda in a 3–4 away loss at Oviedo with a last-minute goal on the 4th of June 2019. Rayo returns to Segunda División B after a one-year stay in Segunda.[5]

Teams promoted from Segunda División B

The first two teams to achieve promotion were Racing Santander and Fuenlabrada on 2 June 2019 after defeating Atlético Baleares and Recreativo on aggregate in the play-off semifinals respectively. Racing Santander return to the Segunda División after a four-year absence.[6] Fuenlabrada went on to become Segunda División B champions as well as making its first-ever appearance in the Spanish second tier.[7] The third team to clinch promotion to the Segunda División was Ponferradina on 29 June 2019 after defeating Hércules in the non-champions play-offs; they return after a three-year absence from the Segunda División.[8] The fourth and last team to get promoted was Mirandés on 30 June 2019 after also coming victorious in the non-champions play-offs, this time against Atlético Baleares; Mirandés return after a two-year absence from the Segunda División.[9]
