Yesterday there were some games in the second division in spain. One of the teams playing was Real Madrid B.
Now my question is, can Real Madrid B if they win most matches and end up first or second in their division be promoted to the first division where Real Madrid (the main team) is?

so hold on a second. If lets say Madrid B are in second place in the end, they get ommitted and the team thats behind them is considered second place?

It's great for a B team player to be in Segunda. It's a professional division, it's also a national division (Segunda B is divided in zones), it has a better TV coverage. But as I said, the main goal of a young player is to play in the first team, or at least in Primera, if it's possible.

I think it's good the young players can play with "men" since an early age. Also the C teams play in senior divisions (Segunda B/Tercera). It's a better way to mature. You should see where Messi was playing last year.

Okay, another question!
Can players that are registered to play for Real Madrid B, also play for the first team, or do they have to stay in the B team?

They can promote in any moment. But whenever they play a certain amount of games with the first team (10, I think), they can't go back to the B team. Look Soldado, he is usually playing in Segunda, where he's the Pichichi, but he played some games in Primera with Real Madrid.

Why is it stupid? If the 'B' team is so good, then their players will promote to the first team, it's their goal, in Madrid and anywhere.

It is quite an odd system.

Using this current example, If Madrid finished bottom of the league, and Madrid B finished top of the Segunda, why couldn't they just swap places? That wouldn't represent a conflict of interest because they would both be in different leagues and if Madrid got promoted the next season, they could simply swap places again, so that Madrid woud go up to the top league and the B team would go back to Segunda.

Bad planning and bad policy.... on a sporting point.

Real could have secured another club via another entity, that allows free competition within segunda onwards, backwards.

...... but they might already have a few clubs already ... quietly.
