Belenenses – Casa da Sorte is the professional basketball team of Clube de Futebol Os Belenenses, based in Lisbon, Portugal. The team plays in the 1ª Divisão of the Campeonato Nacional de Basquetebol,[2] the third tier of Portuguese football, a league organized by the Federação Portuguesa de Basquetebol. Established in 1919, at the same time as the Belenenses football team, its greatest achievements occurred between the late 1930s and 1950s, where it won two league championships and two cup competitions.[3]

In the 2008–09 season, Belenenses was suspended from the professional Basketball leagues due to financial irregularities.[4][5] The club was reinstated a season later.[citation needed] Following the club's reinstatement, the club became sponsored by gambling company Casa da Sorte which resulted in the club incorporating its sponsor's name into the club's basketball name.
