Primeira Liga
Season2018–19
All statistics correct as of April 2018.

The 2018–19 Primeira Liga (also known as Liga NOS for sponsorship reasons) is the 85th season of the Primeira Liga, the top professional league for Portuguese association football clubs. Porto are the defending champions.

Season's incidents[edit]

The weeks leading up to the beginning of the tournament were fulfilled with several polemic cases:

  • Contrarily to previous years, three teams will be relegated. This is due to the fact that Gil Vicente was granted a place in 2019–20 Primeira Liga season by court decision. Gil Vicente argued against this solution since the club claimed for an immediate integration in the first tier (possibly with an enlargement to 20 participating teams).[2]
  • Following the incidents in Academia Sporting, during which players and staff were attacked by the club's ultras, 9 players unilaterally revoked their contracts.[3] Ultimately, after the president's impeachment (as he was deemed responsible for those occurrences), the club was able to convince some of those players to return.[4] Nevertheless, the new administration always admitted that the club would start the season in an early preparation phase.[5]
  • On the 30 of June, following disputes over the administration of the football section, Belenenses broke relationships with the publicly traded company who owns the football section (in Portuguese, SAD - as for, sociedade anónima desportiva). Nevertheless, Codecity Sports Management, the owners of Belenenses's football Inc., decided to keep business and placed an entering in Primeira Liga under the name "Belenenses SAD", using Estádio Nacional as home stadium.[6] In October, the intellectual property court issued an obligation for the team owned by Codecity Sports Management to rebrand, dismissing every trademark connection with Clube de Futebol "Os Belenenses" but the society did not follow and appealed the decision.[7] The original club made a fresh start, entering a team in the bottom division of Lisbon FA (6th tier), keeping the support of a vast majority of the fans. and start from the last division, with the support of the majority of fans.[8]
