Primera Iberdrola was first operated in 1988 and held annually from that time. There are a total of 12 different clubs that have been championed. Athletic Club and Barcelona are considered the strongest teams. 

The league’s name and format were changed several times before remaining the current format.

As of the 1996- 97 season, the competition was called División de Honor. It was divided into 4 groups. The best teams played a semi- final and final to find out the champion. 

In the 2001-02 season, the Superliga was the official name of the league. The format of group matches was also changed into a double round-robin structure. Each team competed with the other teams twice, once away and once at home. There were 14 teams taking part in this season. Until the 2008-09 season, the league’s format was increased from 14 to 16 teams.

In the 2009-10 season, the Superliga had 24 participating teams. Their groups of 7 to 8 teams each are made, with geographically nearby teams placed into each group to minimize travel. In the first stage of the season, each team played each other team in its group twice. In the second stage, the best two of each group and the two best third-place finishers went into group A. The other teams were divided into groups B and C based on a predefined key. 

A double round-robin was played within each group. All Group A teams and the three best finishers of Group B and C qualified for the Copa de la Reina, and the two best teams in Group A played each other in a two-legged final for the season's championship. Rayo Vallecano was the champion in the 2009-10 and 2010-11 against RCD Espanyol. 

Starting in the 2011–12 season, the league was renamed Primera División. The group-based system was eliminated and 18 teams played double round-robin to decide the champion. There were 16 teams for the 2012–13 season.

Before the 2016–17 season, Iberdrola became the sponsor of the league and the name Liga Iberdrola was born. It was renamed Primera Iberdrola in 2019.

On 10 June 2020, the Primera División was regarded as a professionalized league in Spain.
