The Liga Portuguesa de Basquetebol (in English: Portuguese Basketball League) is the top men’s basketball league in Portugal. From the 2008-09 season onwards, the competition will be organized once again by the Federação Portuguesa de Basquetebol after 13 seasons. This was caused by the fold of the LCB, after many years of financial problems, which was a professional league. The league is now semi-professional. SL Benfica has been the dominant force since 2008, winning 58 of the 60 regular season games played by the team since the beginning of the 2008/2009 season and becoming champions twice.
