The Campeonato Nacional (Portuguese for National Championship), also known as Liga BPI for sponsorship reasons, is a Portuguese semi-professional league for women's association football clubs. It is run by Portuguese Football Federation and began in 1993. An initial ten teams compete in the league, which replaced the Taça Nacional as the highest level of women's football in Portugal. The current champions are Sporting CP which won its first title in 2017. The most successful team is S.U. 1º de Dezembro, with 12 titles.

Competition format[edit]


As of 2016–17 There are 12 clubs in the Campeonato Nacional. During the course of a season (from September to May) each club plays the others twice (a double round-robin system), once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents', for 22 games. Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw. No points are awarded for a loss. Teams are ranked by total points, then head-to-head points, head-to-head goal difference, goal difference, matches won, and goals scored. If still equal, a play-off match at a neutral venue decides rank. The two lowest placed teams are relegated into the Campeonato Nacional II Divisão, and the top two teams from the Campeonato Nacional de Promoção are promoted in their place.

Qualification for European competitions[edit]

The winner of Campeonato Nacional qualifies for the UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying round.
