Why no subjunctive?


If there were already influencers of all kinds on the networks, athleisure was not going to be an exception.

I am struggling to understand the meaning of this sentence.  Is it talking about a hypothetical or real situation?

The best answer is given as:

Si ya había influencers de todo tipo en las redes,

 Why is it not hubiera?

Gracias

Hola David

This is expressing a "real" situation. It is "declaring" something as factual information. It is as if we said "As there were already influencers of all kinds..."

Here, "si" has a "cause" purpose.

I hope it clarified it.

Saludos
