Liga Española de Baloncesto is the second league of the Spanish basketball league system behind the ACB. It is run by the FEB. The Liga Española de Baloncesto is divided into two categories and they are sponsored by Adecco. The names of the two leagues are Adecco Oro and Adecco Plata.

The LEB league was founded in 1996, and is played under FIBA rules. Top category, LEB Oro, currently includes 18 teams.

Liga championship rules[edit]

Each team of every division has to play with all the other teams of its division twice, once at home and the other at the opponent's stadium. This means that in Liga LEB the league ends after every team plays 34 games.

Like many other leagues in continental Europe, the Liga LEB takes a winter break once each team has played half its schedule. One feature of the league that may be unusual to North American observers is that the two halves of the season are played in the same order—that is, the order of each team's first-half fixtures is repeated in the second half of the season, with the only difference being the arenas used. This procedure is typical in Europe; it is also used by La Liga in football.

Each victory adds 1 match of win to the team in the league ranking. Each match defeated adds 1 match defeated.head-to-head. At the end of the league, the winner is:

  1. The team that has most matches won in the ranking.
  2. If two or more teams are level on points, the winner is the team that has the best baskets
  3. If there is no winner after applying the second rule, then the team with the best overall matches head to head difference wins.

At the half of the league, the two first teams in the table play the Copa Príncipe at home of the winner of the first half season. The Champion of this Cup will play the play-offs as first qualified if it finishes the league between the 2nd and the 5th qualified.

LEB Oro[edit]

LEB Plata[edit]

Main article: LEB Plata

LEB Plata is the Spanish basketball third league since 2001, the second division of the leagues organized by the Spanish Basketball Federation. The best teams promotes to LEB Oro and the last qualified ones are relegated to Liga EBA.

LEB Bronce[edit]

In 2007, the Spanish Basketball Federation decided to create a third LEB with 18 teams, like the other two. Since that day, renamed LEB as LEB Oro (LEB Gold) and LEB-2 as LEB Plata (LEB Silver). This new league was called LEB Bronce, three first teams were promoted each year to LEB Plata and the four last teams were relegated to Liga EBA.

LEB Bronce had also its Cup, like the other LEBs. In 2009, after two seasons, LEB Bronce was removed due to the difficulties of the teams that enjoyed the new league.
