Spain's elite football competition, La Liga, begins life without superstar Lionel Messi this August. Messi left cash-stricken Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 after his contract expired.
Messi's loss will be felt, there's no doubt, but the competition returns after a wonderful 2020/21 campaign when Atletico Madrid were crowned champions over perennial champs and crosstown rivals Real Madrid.
Real Madrid has a new manager in the form of Italian Carlo Ancelotti, who managed English Premier League side Everton last season. He replaces French great Zinadine Zidane.
This campaign is the 91st in La Liga. The competition is played between 20 clubs who each play a total of 38 matches from August through to May. The title looks again to be a race between Atletico, Real Madrid and the ageing Barcelona squad this season.
This is how you can watch La Liga in Australia.
The exclusive rights to broadcast La Liga in Australia are held by beIN SPORTS. Rest assured, though, there are multiple ways to subscribe to this sports channel, including Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now, beIN SPORTS CONNECT and Kayo Sports, giving you plenty of choice.
This weekend, beIN SPORTS is putting together a special broadcast for what looms as a fascinating finale to the campaign. Starting with a pre-game show at 1:30am AEST, it then has a program it's calling La Liga Multigoal, which will follow all of the action from each game as it happens. There is also a post-game show from 4:30am to wrap it all up. Here's how you can live stream La Liga in Australia or watch on TV.

Content from BeIN SPORTS is included on Kayo Sports, the streaming platform that offers coverage of over 50 sports from all over the world live and on demand. A basic subscription costs $27.50 per month and enables users to watch programming on two screens at the same time, while a premium subscription supports three simultaneous streams for $35 per month.
Besides a generous library of content, Kayo Sports boasts several exciting features that are likely to appeal to football fans.

If you're short on time, you can tune in for a Kayo Mini, a condensed version of key sport match-ups that delivers all the highlights in 20 minutes or less. There's a great Netflix-style user-interface, game-day hub pages and easy on-demand access to most sports, documentaries, chat shows and news broadcasts. There's plenty more to discover, too, so make sure you look into our detailed Kayo Sports review.
Kayo Sports comes with no lock-in contracts, so you can cancel your subscription anytime. Best of all, new users get a 14-day free trial. The service is compatible with PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets, or you can watch on TV via Android TV, Apple TV, PS4, PS5, Telstra TV, Chromecast, and select smart TVs.

All three beIN SPORTS channels are included in the Foxtel iQ Sports HD pack, which allows you to watch La Liga on your TV. Besides access to 12 sports channels, Foxtel subscribers also get the iQ4 box, which enables you to watch content in 4K and record live TV. The Sports HD channel pack usually costs $25 per month on top of the base $49 per month pack, but there are usually Foxtel iQ deals available that can either bring down that cost or save you on installation or box fees. You will stream the channels you are subscribed to through your laptop or mobile device via the Foxtel GO app. This app is available for free to all Foxtel customers.
Alternatively, beIN SPORTS is also available with Foxtel Now, the streaming platform that lets you watch Foxtel content live and on demand via the Internet. You will need the Sport pack, a premium offering priced at $29 per month. You can only add Sport to your subscription if you already have the Essentials pack. This one is $25 per month and comes with a mix of Pop and Lifestyle channels. As a result, you'll have to pay at least $54 per month to stream La Liga matches with Foxtel Now.
The online platform is compatible with PCs, Macs, smartphones, tablets, Chromecast, AirPlay, the Foxtel Now box, Sony Android TVs, PS4 and Telstra TV. New subscribers do get access to a 10-day free trial.
beIN SPORTS is also available on Fetch TV, as a special interest channel pack priced at $19.99 per month. The total price of your subscription, though, will depend on whether you get your Fetch box through a broadband provider or buy it outright.
