Teams relegated to Liga de Honra

União de Leiria have been relegated to Liga de Honra after finishing in last place in 2007–08 Portuguese Liga.

Boavista have also been relegated as a punishment for their participation in a match fixing scandal in 2003–04 season. Thereby Paços de Ferreira, who were originally scheduled to be relegated, were saved from demotion.

Teams promoted from Liga de Honra

Leiria and Boavista were replaced by two promoted teams from Liga de Honra. The first were Trofense, who clinched the second level title. This is their first appearance in Portuguese Liga.

They were accompanied by Rio Ave, who returned to Portuguese Liga after two seasons spent in Liga de Honra.
