Granada Returns to La Liga after Defeating Elche CF

Granada CF, who have never won a major honor, has become the first winner of the promotion playoffs and secured promotion from the Segunda Division to La Liga for the first time since 1976 after successively defeating Celta de Vigo and Elche CF.

Six years ago, while FC Barcelona emerged as the champion of La Liga, Granada were still playing in the fourth tier of Spanish football

Granada’s highest finish in La Liga is sixth. The team has never won the King’s Cup and only found itself in the lowly depths of the Tercera Division five years ago

Granada has never won a major honor in their 80-year history. The club has been back to the top-tier of Spanish soccer just three times since 1941 as it was first promoted to La Liga

The last time when Granada played in La Liga was the 1975 – 1976 season as the club was ultimately relegated
