As with each new season, LaLiga Santander will welcome three new teams into the fold for the 2019/20 campaign in the shape of CA Osasuna, Granada CF and RCD Mallorca. It will also bring us two new firsts: a whole new sound identity for LaLiga, composed by Emmy Award-winning composer Lucas Vidal; and a new cutting-edge match ball designed by PUMA for both LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank, the rebranded second tier.

We will also have a host of exciting new signings to join the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos and Koke. Stars of the global game have queued up to join Spanish football among them are Eden Hazard, Frenkie de Jong, Joao Felix, Nabil Fekir and Maxi Gomez.

State-of-the-art aerial cameras are now operative at 11 different LaLiga stadiums, with Getafe, Eibar and Real Sociedad the latest clubs to adopt the technology, while eight stadiums offer 360° replays.

This season will also see the return of VAR (Video Assisted Referee).
