The Liga de Fútbol Profesional (LFP) publish every year the fixtures for La Liga in the middle of July. From that day we know which teams will face each other in every match of the league and also the week and the stadium in which the matches will take place. However, the exact day and hour of the matches are fixed just a week or so before the match because of television agreements.

La Liga matches are played on:

-          Weekends (usually): Saturday, Sunday and one match on Monday.

-          Weekdays (sometimes): Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The teams that compete in European tournaments usually play La Liga matches on the weekend and not on Mondays. Barcelona and Real Madrid are two of these teams.

The times at which the matches take place vary depending on the season or the period of the league, but they are similar every year. La Liga 2011-2012 match times were these:

Saturday

6 pm

8 pm

10 pm

Sunday

12 am

6 pm

7 / 8 pm

9.30 pm

Monday

9 pm

 

The weekend (or the weekday) on which the matches are due to be played is fixed in the middle of July and it is not usually modified except if there are weather problems, matches of other competitions or other causes that make it impossible to play the match. The date of the delayed match will then be published several weeks before its takes place.

The Santiago Bernabéu stadium is located in the Avenida Concha Espina s/n, beside Paseo de la Castellana, in the neighborhood of Chamartín, in Madrid.

Getting to the Santiago Bernabeu is easy using both public and private transport. However, there is usually congestion in the area surrounding the stadium, and even more so the days on which Real Madrid are playing a match, so it is much more comfortable to get to the Santiago Bernabeu by public transport: metro or bus.

The nearest metro station to the stadium of Real Madrid is “Santiago Bernabéu station” (line 10), which has the following exits near to the stadium:

-          Plaza de Lima

-          Paseo de la Castellana (central boulevard, 136)

-          Paseo de la Castellana (central boulevard, 103)

-          Paseo de la Castellana (right in front of the stadium)

If you would rather get to the Santiago Bernabéu by bus you can take the lines 14, 27, 40, 43, 120, 147 and 150.

Enjoy your Santiago Bernabéu visit!

 

FC Barcelona and their fans are known as “cules”; RCD Espanyol as “periquitos”; Valencia as “ches”… And why are Real Madrid and their fans known as “merengues”?

The word “merengue” referring to Real Madrid was used for first time in the Spanish press in 1913, 11 years after the club was founded. Real Madrid’s shirt was already white at that time (although not the kit, like now) and that brought people to identify Real with the popular dessert “meringue” (made from whipped egg whites and sugar, which is totally white).

However, the name “merengue” in reference to Real Madrid became common when La Liga matches began to be broadcast on radio. At that time there was only one radio station in Spain, Radio Nacional de España, so every name used by the famous Spanish journalist Matías Prats (who commentated all matches) was very likely to become popular.

This was exactly what happened with Real Madrid. Matías Prats began to talk about Los Blancos as “merengues”, and from that moment on, Real Madrid would be for ever known by this name.
