It’s not until the 2021–2022 season that LaLiga‘s next season actually begins. According to LaLiga figures produced by Palco23 under the sponsorship of CaixaBank, the league has registered an average attendance of 76% between matchdays sixteen and nineteen of the First Division with 974,179 cumulative spectators.

Although this is an increase over the 66.5% recorded in the 2020-2021 season and the 72.5% recorded on the same day of the 2019-2020 season before the beginning of the pandemic, it is still much behind the 80.1% recorded in the same month last year.

Last month, the Real Sociedad vs. Athletic Club match at the Reale Arena had the highest relative attendance with 38,229 out of 39,400 seats full (96.8%). There were a total of five additional games in the tournament where 90% or more of the seats were filled.
