The Portuguese Basketball Premier League is the top men’s basketball league in Portugal. It is called in Portuguese: I Liga Portuguesa de Basquetebol (LPB), or in English: Portuguese Basketball Premier League. 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.
