Liga Española de Baloncesto is a Spanish basketball league that is the next level of the ACB. It's run by the FEB. The Liga Española de Baloncesto is divided into two categories: LEB Oro and LEB Plata.

The LEB league was founded in 1996, and is played under FIBA rules. Top category, LEB Oro, currently includes 18 teams.


Liga championship rules

Each team of every division has to play with all the other teams of its division twice, once at home and the other at the opponent's stadium. This means that in Liga LEB the league ends after every team plays 34 matches.

Like many other leagues in continental Europe, the Liga LEB takes a winter break once each team has played half its schedule. One feature of the league that may be unusual to North American observers is that the two halves of the season are played in the same order—that is, the order of each team's first-half fixtures is repeated in the second half of the season, with the only difference being the arenas used. This procedure is typical in Europe; it is also used by La Liga in football and the ACB.

Each victory adds 1 match of win to the team in the league ranking. Each match defeated adds 1 match defeated.head-to-head. At the end of the league, the winner is:

  1. The team that has most matches won in the ranking.
  2. If two or more teams are level on points, the winner is the team that has the best baskets
  3. If there is no winner after applying the second rule, then the team with the best overall matches head to head difference wins.
