The 2016–17 La Liga season, also known as La Liga Santander for sponsorship reasons,[2] was the 86th since its establishment. The season began on 19 August 2016 and concluded on 21 May 2017.

The title was won by Real Madrid, for a record 33rd time; this was the first time they became champions since the 2011–12 season. Real Madrid also became the first side to score in every match of their Liga campaign.[3][4]

Name sponsorship

The Spanish top flight dropped the sponsorship from BBVA and will now be called LaLiga while the second division will be called LaLiga2.[5][6] The league made this change to maximize the LaLiga brand. On 20 July, Banco Santander was appointed as new sponsor.

Promotion and relegation (pre-season)

A total of 20 teams contested the league, including 17 sides from the 2015–16 season and three promoted from the 2015–16 Segunda División. This included the two top teams from the Segunda División, and the winners of the play-offs.

Deportivo Alavés was the first team from Segunda División to achieve promotion, after a ten-year absence from La Liga, on 29 May 2016 after winning 2–0 against CD Numancia.[7] CD Leganés was promoted as the runners-up after winning 1–0 at CD Mirandés in the last match-day, on 4 June 2016. This was Leganés' first promotion to the top division.[8] CA Osasuna was the last to be promoted after beating Gimnàstic de Tarragona and Girona FC in the play-offs.[9] The Reds returned to La Liga two years after their last relegation.

The three promoted clubs replaced Rayo Vallecano, Getafe, and Levante, who were relegated at the end of the previous season.
