Changes to 2008–09

Team changes

Trofense have been relegated to the Liga de Honra after finishing the 2008–09 season in 16th and last place. Trofense were to be accompanied by Belenenses, who finished in 15th place. Belenenses were ending a ten-year stretch in the Portuguese top-level league, while Trofense returned to the Liga da Honra after just one year in the top flight.

However, Estrela da Amadora, who finished last season in 11th place, have been relegated for economic problems to the Liga Vitalis. Therefore, Belenenses' relegation has been reversed and they will participate in the Liga Sagres once more.[4]

The relegated teams will be replaced by Liga Vitalis 2008–09 champions Olhanense and runners-up União de Leiria. Olhanense will return to the top-flight after 34 years, while Leiria will be back after a one-year hiatus.

Structural changes

Based on UEFA coefficients, Portugal finished in 10th place of the UEFA country ranking after the 2008–09 season[5] As a result, the Portuguese league will lose one qualification spot for the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League. The third-placed team will now qualify for the third qualification round instead of the play-off round. The fourth-placed team will enter the competition in the second qualification round while the fifth place will not initially qualify for any European competitions via league placement. However, this may change during the course of the season depending on the league performance of both 2009–10 Cup of Portugal finalists.
