The Liga Femenina de Baloncesto (English: Basketball Women's League) is the first tier level women's professional basketball league in Spain. It was founded in 1964 and organized by the Spanish Basketball Federation.

The Women's Basketball League, which is played under FIBA rules, currently consists of 14 teams, of which the most successful have been Ros Casares Valencia.

Liga championship rules[edit]

Each team has to play all the other teams in its division twice, once at home and once away. This means that in Liga Femenina de Baloncesto the league's regular season ends after all teams play 26 matches.

At the end of the league, the four best teams in the standings start a play-off, pitting the first place team in the standings versus the 4th place team in the standings, and so on. There are two playoff rounds, each consisting of three game series, and the winner of the finals round becomes the champion of the Liga Femenina de Baloncesto. This is similar to the NBA playoffs system, but shorter.

Each season, the two last qualified teams of the regular season are relegated to Liga Femenina 2 de Baloncesto and replaced by the two first qualified teams of this league.
