Life in La Liga

The Story of Spanish Club Football
by Rab MacWilliam - Find out more about the author

In Life in La Liga, football writer Rab MacWilliam delves to the heart of one of Europe’s most historically and politically complex nations to explore its rich football history, examining its deep-rooted rivalries and internecine vendettas, and the undoubtedly impressive standard of its football clubs.

From the big five of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Athletic Bilbao, Atletico Madrid and Valencia, to the likes of Sevilla, Real Sociedad, Deportivo de La Coruna, Real Zaragoza, Celta de Vigo, Espanyol, Real Betis and Sporting Gijon, McWilliam laces an entertainingly informative narrative with short biographies of the Spanish game’s main participants, players, and characters, as well as reflections on the humorous, tragic and pivotal events that have taken place since the Spanish league’s origins in the late nineteenth century on its journey to becoming the dominant force in the global game that it is today.

Rab MacWilliam has worked in journalism and publishing for over forty years. He is the author of numerous books and articles on football and currently writes regularly for Nutmeg magazine.
