Out of those, only two are not used by any club: Estadio Olimpico La Cartuja in Seville and Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Barcelona. Estadio La Cartuja is used by the Spanish national team. even though both of the stadiums are among the biggest in Spain with capacities of 57,000+ and 55,000+ respectively.

In the inaugural season, ten teams participated in the league. Athletic Bilabao’s San Mames, and Real Union’s Stadium Gal are the only two stadiums that were used in the first ever La Liga season and are still being used today.
