Deportivo begin and end the liga 2015/16 playing at the Riazor. The debuts takes place against Real Sociedad and the last game is against Real Madrid. The derbies against RC Celta are taking place in November and April.

The calendar for the league season 2015/216 was fixed on Tuesday during the annual meeting of the RFEF. President Tino Fernández and former president Augusto César Lendoiro were there as both are part of the LFP board.

La liga starts on August 23 and ends on May 15, fifteen days before the previous season concluded as immediately the national team will play the UEFA Euro 2016. For the season 2015/16 there are four international breaks (September, October, November and March)

At the same time four matchdays will be disputed in midweek. Depor will be facing Real Betis (matchday 05), Atlético Madrid (matchday 10), Athletic Club (matchday 27) and FC Barcelona (matchday 34) in those days. The matches against Atlético and Barca are taking place at the Riazor, while the meetings with Betis and Athletic are away games.

Deportivo will begin and end the season playing at the Riazor, it kick-offs the campaign hosting Real Sociedad and ends the season hosting Real Madrid. To notice that Los Blanquiazules are taking the rivals faced by Valencia CF in the previous week. The first Galician derby will be played at the Riazor (November 08) and the second in Balaídos (April 03)

The most difficult part in the calendar comes in the end of each round, because within the last six games Depor are facing the two giants plus other two clubs that will be playing European competitions (Sevilla CF and Villarreal CF).

Coach Víctor Sánchez commented that he isn’t worried for the calendar, “We cannot choose, so we are enchanted with the calendar that we had. We will try to face it in the best possible way. We will prepare each matchday in order to be competitive against each rival and clinch the goal as soon as possible; regarding the order of the rivals it’s one of the multiple combinations and it’s good.” He neither was worried for the last stretch in the calendar,  Last season we arrived at the end and among the last seven games we faced five teams that were at the top, and the only rival that bet us was Atlético Madrid.”
