The Portuguese Professional Football League has the privilege to organize the professional football competitions in a country where people love football. Portugal is placed in second among the European countries where, proportionally, there is more public attending the stadiums. We look forward to having competitions with quality teams, which can attract even more public to the stadiums and steadily assert Portuguese football at international level. The Portuguese League is an enthusiastic member of the EPFL since its beginning.  EPFL is the common house of the European professional clubs and has made an important contribution for the development and modernization of football. We consider that football is facing enormous challenges and only a movement at European level will be capable to successfully respond to those challenges we are confronted with, among which I would like to underline:  the fight for sports truth; legal definition of an European (football) player; clearness in players’ transfers; broadcasting and image rights and equality of all football clubs before international bodies. I am sure the European football shares the same principles and the EPFL will continually be affirmed as the speaker of the European clubs in the defense of their interests.


Portuguese League for Professional Football (LPFP - Liga Portuguesa de Futebol Profissional) is the main organizing entity for professional football (soccer) in Portugal, headquartered in the city of Porto, in northern Portugal. LPFP organizes the two major professional football championships of Portugal: the Portuguese Liga, and the Liga de Honra, which are respectively, the first and second top layers in the Portuguese football league system pyramid, and also the Carlsberg Cup (League Cup).
