The Liga Portuguesa de Futebol Profissional (Portuguese Professional Football League), also known by its acronym LPFP, or Liga Portugal, is a governing body that manages professional football club competitions in Portugal. It was founded in 1978 and works as an autonomous organism under the authority of the Portuguese Football Federation. As of 28 July 2015, its president is former Portuguese international referee Pedro Proença.
The LPFP is responsible for the organisation and supervision of the top two leagues – the Primeira Liga and the Segunda Liga – and of the Taça da Liga, a knockout cup competition limited to the clubs competing in the professional leagues (except reserve or B teams).
