2014–15 Segunda Liga

The Segunda Liga (English: Second League; Portuguese pronunciation: [sɨˈɣundɐ ˈliɣɐ]), formerly called Segunda Divisão de Honra (Second Division of Honour), now named Liga2 Cabovisão after its main sponsor, Cabovisão, is the Portuguese second level football league. When the LPFP took control of the two nationwide levels in 1999, it was renamed "Segunda Liga", before changing it to Liga de Honra in the 2005–06 season. The name reverted to "Segunda Liga" in the beginning of the 2012–13 season. The current champions are Moreirense.

Going into its 24th edition, the Segunda Liga is contested by 24 clubs, with 17 different clubs having won the title.

History[edit]

Before 1990, there was only one professional nationwide football league in Portugal the Primeira Divisão (First Division). Lower placed teams were relegated to the Segunda Divisão (Second Division), a regional league, while the top teams from that league would be promoted to the First Division. Starting with the 1990–91 season, a new second-tier professional league was created, taking the name Segunda Divisão de Honra, while the previous Segunda Divisão became the third-tier league and was renamed Segunda Divisão B.

In 1999, the Portuguese League for Professional Football (LPFP) took control of the two nationwide levels and renamed the league Segunda Liga (Second League), while the Segunda Divisão B reverted to its original name.

Competition[edit]

From the 2014–15 season on, there are 24 clubs in the Segunda Liga. During the course of a season, each club plays all teams twice — once at their home stadium and once at their opponent's — for a total of 46 games. At the end of each season, the two top teams are promoted to Primeira Liga and the three lowest placed teams are relegated to the Campeonato Nacional de Seniores. There are B teams. These teams can't be promoted to Primeira Liga but can be demoted to the Campeonato Nacional de Seniores if they end the season in one of the relegation positions or if the main team is also relegated to the same league.
