About Spain ACB

The Liga ACB, for Asociacion de Clubes de Baloncesto, is known today as Liga Endesa, following a new sponsorship deal signed in 2011 with an electric company. 18 teams, 34 regular season games followed by playoffs.

One can argue the Spanish basketball league is the top domestic league in Europe with four of its teams playing the Euroleague. The rivalry between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, nicknamed El Classico, has been the main attraction for years as the two giants have won 53 out of 63 championships since 1956. Real took home 35 trophies and has extended its dominance to the Euroleague with 10 championships.

Overall, the ACB is known for its profesionalism and the quality of its infrastructures. 8 arenas in the League can host more that 10.000 fans and the average attendance is above 6.000 per game. The influence of US players tends to be less important than in other European leagues with teams signing top players from Eastern Europe or South America.

Except for those playing in the NBA, the top Spanish players don’t take their talents abroad but stay on home soil, therefore strenghtening the local clubs.
