2018–19 Campeonato de Portugal

The Campeonato de Portugal (Portuguese for Championship of Portugal), officially known as Campeonato de Portugal Prio for sponsorship reasons, is the third-level football league in Portugal. It is the only non-professional national league that is organized by the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF).

The competition was created in 2013 as Campeonato Nacional de Seniores (Seniors National Championship) to replace the Portuguese Second and Third Divisions (third and fourth tiers of the Portuguese football league system, respectively) for the 2013–14 season. On 22 October 2015, the competition was renamed Campeonato de Portugal, its current designation.


The first season was contested by a total of 80 clubs, which included 19 teams from the District Championships, 39 from the Portuguese Second Division, 19 from the Portuguese Third Division and three teams relegated from the Segunda Liga during the 2012–13 season. The current format consists of five series of sixteen teams, arranged according to geographic criteria, with the exception of teams from Madeira (placed in the first series) and from the Azores (placed in the last two series).[1][2]
