    Who said Primera Liga?

    Why sports news about Spain always talk about "Primera Liga" (like this one, for instance)? Who the heck invented that? Is that a bad translation of "Premier League"? The first division of the Spanish professional league is called "Primera División", not Primera Liga.

    Benítez makes Spanish soccer history: «In days of yore, the Spanish first soccer division (which shouldn\'t be called primera liga, but Primera División, the Liga is the whole thing, including all divisions) was nicknamed the League of the Stars. It was when two Spanish sides cla»

    I'm afraid it will end up being fault of some stupid Spaniard who chose to call it "La Liga" (mimicking Italians' Calcio, perhaps?). 'División', by the way, has 3 syllables (4 if they miss the diptongue) and therefore is almost impossible to pronounce in english ;-P

    Calcio means sock? Liga, as in sock, or liga, as in the English league? Lita in Italian is Lega, right?
    But Liga, in Spanish is the whole stuff, composed of many divisions. First division in Italian is "Serie A". And I'm lost here.

    Mimicking, not translating. The funny thing is precisely that: when the newsman talks about Italian football, they talk about calcio and the results in the serie A league. So they can grasp the idea of calcio for "Italian football" and 'serie A' for the premier league. Maybe we (meaning someone in la Liga) should make a press release or something to explain the whole thing. Or maybe they like it that way. Or, most likely, nobody gives a damn.

    Probably nobody gives a damn.
