Portugal Segunda Liga Summary

Between the 2014–15 season and 2015–16 season, there are 24 clubs in the Segunda Liga. For the 2016–17 season it is foreseen to reduce the number of teams from 24 to 22. During the course of a season, each club plays all teams twice — once at their home stadium and once at their opponents — for a total of 46 games. At the end of each season, the two top teams are promoted to Primeira Liga and the five lowest placed teams are relegated to the Campeonato de Portugal. The B teams cant be promoted to Primeira Liga but can be demoted to the Campeonato de Portugal if they end the season in one of the relegation positions or if the main team is also relegated to the same league.
