La Liga 2023-24: A Complete Guide to Schedule, Fixtures, TV Channels, and FAQs - ABBASITV

With the resurgence of European domestic football, a palpable wave of excitement engulfs fans and experts alike as the forthcoming season draws near. Among the multitude of European leagues commanding attention over the next nine months, Spain's premier domestic football league, La Liga, stands out as one of the most enthralling competitions. However, before delving into the intricacies of the schedule and matches, it's essential to take a deeper look into what La Liga has in store for the eagerly anticipated 2023-24 season.

Recognized as the world's third most popular professional football league, trailing only Germany's Bundesliga and England's Premier League, La Liga's widespread appeal can be attributed to the presence of some of the globe's most illustrious clubs. The likes of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have played a pivotal role in drawing a substantial viewership to the league, owing to their triumphant performances on domestic, continental, and international stages. Interestingly, the combined tally of UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, and FIFA Club World Cup titles secured by La Liga teams surpasses that of any other league.

Given this prestigious legacy, it's hardly surprising that La Liga teams are currently engaged in the bustling summer transfer market, laying the groundwork for the commencement of the 2023-24 season. While prominent names such as Karim Benzema, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba (among others) will be absent in the upcoming season, noteworthy talents like Jude Bellingham, Ilkay Gundogan, and Cesar Azpilicueta have made their way to Spain.

Following the departure of iconic figures Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi – two of the most remarkable players of our era and perhaps football history – the race for the La Liga title has become more open, with numerous teams in close pursuit of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. Analyzing the previous season's performances alongside developments in the summer transfer window, it's evident that the upcoming season promises an even more intense and competitive atmosphere.

So, let's delve into various aspects of the La Liga 2023-24 season, including the points table, match structure, schedule, and fixtures.

What Format Will La Liga Follow in the 2023-24 Season?

Since the 1997-98 season, a total of 20 teams have vied for the coveted La Liga title, and this trend continues into the upcoming 2023-24 season. The competition unfolds through a league format, with teams clashing twice – once at home and once away. This arrangement leads to each team participating in 38 league matches throughout the 2023-24 season. At the conclusion of this series, the team accumulating the highest points secures the coveted top position on the table, emerging victorious.

While points determine the championship, they also play a pivotal role in determining the bottom-ranked teams. According to regulations, the three teams finishing at the lowest positions in La Liga are relegated to La Liga 2 for the following season. Simultaneously, the top three teams from La Liga 2 earn the promotion to La Liga for the upcoming season.

Moreover, the top four teams in La Liga earn qualification for the subsequent season's UEFA Champions League. Additionally, the champions of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League secure direct entry into the Champions League of the following season. If circumstances arise where six teams from La Liga (including Champions League and Europa League winners) qualify for Europe's elite club football competition, the fourth-placed La Liga team will participate in the Europa League, as the Champions League allows a maximum of five teams from each nation.
