It is important to note that this is not a definitive list of all the countries in the world which air coverage of La Liga, and that there are likely countries in the world where one could pay less or more to watch La Liga than those listed here. It is a list of 20 noteworthy football-loving nations and the prices their citizens must pay to watch La Liga.

This list provides the annual cost of gaining access to as many La Liga matches as possible in a given market. In some cases, it isn't possible to access every single La Liga match of the season due to the way various broadcasting rights deals are structured. However, in other cases, fans can pay to get access to every single La Liga match of the season and choose which ones they want to enjoy each weekend.

The prices displayed in the index also represent the absolute cheapest possible approach to getting the most games. In the case of some rights holders, a monthly subscription to a single live streaming platform is the cheapest way. In others, a fan must pay for subscriptions to multiple different broadcasters to cover all of the different matches available.

This list provides the annual cost of gaining access to as many La Liga matches as possible in a given market. In some cases, it isn't possible to access every single La Liga match of the season due to the way various broadcasting rights deals are structured. However, in other cases, fans can pay to get access to every single La Liga match of the season and choose which ones they want to enjoy each weekend.

Some of the prices listed here are astronomically lower than others. It is important to take into account the average salary of people living in those places, and the availability of internet access and TV subscriptions. This index is purely designed to lay out the differences in price for comparison purposes. It does not suggest that watching La Liga football is necessarily easier from country to country. That would depend on the individual circumstances of the fan.

After determining the absolute cheapest route to take, involving the fewest subscriptions possible, to gain access to the maximum number of games possible in all 20 countries, our team did the calculations to come up with a per-season figure for watching La Liga in each place. Prices are listed in their original currencies and those prices are then automatically converted into GBP (British Pounds) for comparison purposes, taking into account currency exchange rates, which are updated daily.

Here's what we found:

Unsurprisingly, the most expensive place to watch La Liga is indeed Spain. It's quite common for the country in which a specific league is played to be the most costly but Spanish football fans get a particularly raw deal. In order to watch every La Liga match while living in Spain, fans need to pay upwards of €1000 to exclusive rights holder Movistar. It's by far the highest figure for watching football across any of our price indexes, even making UK based Premier League fans seem lucky.

The two countries with the second and third highest La Liga prices are the Netherlands and New Zealand. On one hand, this is not so surprising as both nations are very affluent with a very high average salary, but the popularity of La Liga in these countries is far less than in other parts of the world. This is especially the case in New Zealand. Nonetheless, due to the way the chips fall in terms of which broadcasters own the rights to La Liga, and what they usually charge for subscriptions, fans can often be required to pay an ungodly amount to follow some leagues and get great bargains to watch others. La Liga fans in New Zealand are unlucky in this sense.

On the other end of the spectrum, India is the cheapest place in the world to watch La Liga, with a subscription worth around £10 a year enough to see fans enjoy as much La Liga action as they can take.

Brazil is one of the cheapest countries on the list for watching La Liga football. While it may not be free to watch La Liga in Brazil, unlike the Bundesliga, it is still available at a very reasonable price. Meanwhile, La Liga fans in the United States, of which there are many, can also follow their favourite teams and players at a similarly low price.

Several of Spain's neighbouring coutnries have to pay fairly hefty costs to follow La Liga, like the Netherlands, Italy and Germany, while others like France and Portugal enjoy much cheaper pricing structures. This is particularly the case for those from Iberian neighbour Portugal where fans can watch at a very good price.

Singapore has an outstanding deal for watching La Liga on beIN Sports, especially considering the strength of its economy. Unfortunately, the same is not the case for fans in South Africa and Nigeria, where despite having very low average salaries, fans have to pay on average more than their Singaporean, British and American counterparts to watch all La Liga games. Prices in the two African countries fall in the middle of the pack, which may seem like a relatively good deal, but to be paying more than UK based fans to watch La Liga is a little shocking.
