Main Competitions[edit]

Divisão de Honra[edit]

The Divisão de Honra is the first tier of the Viseu Football Association. Between 1927 and 1947 it was called 1ª Divisão.[1] At the end of each season, the top-finishing team is promoted to the Campeonato de Portugal, and the lowest-ranked teams are relegated to the AF Viseu second tier.

Eighteen different teams have won the division title; the most successful is Académico de Viseu, with seventeen wins. The inaugural champion was Lusitano.[2]

Primeira Divisão[edit]

The Primeira Divisão is the second tier in the Viseu district division. It is divided into two zones that divide the district: Zona Norte and Zona Sul. The two winners from each zone play against each other in one play-off to crown the champion.

Segunda Divisão[edit]

The Segunda Divisão was the third tier of the Viseu Football Association. It was abolished after the restructure of the Portuguese football league system, with the 2010–11 season being the competition's last. The final champion was Mangualde.
