Promotion and relegation[edit]

Teams relegated to Liga de Honra[edit]

The professional competitions shrunk from 18 to 16 clubs following last season's promotions and relegations' modifications. Penafiel, Rio Ave, Vitória de Guimarães were relegated to the Liga de Honra.

In June 2006, Belenenses, who finished 15th in the previous season, were scheduled to be relegated. However, the Lisbon team presented a complaint to the Portuguese League for Professional Football regarding the use of a non-registered player (Mateus) by 13th placed Gil Vicente. The penalty pretended by Belenenses would result in Gil Vicente being relegated in their place. This claim generated a series of appeals and controversial statements to the media. The decision has been taken in 23 August and made Belenenses stay in the Portuguese Liga while Gil Vicente were relegated to the Liga de Honra.
