From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sport Lisboa e Benfica B was the reserve team of Sport Lisboa e Benfica. Benfica’s reserve team was extinguished in 2006 after just a few years in operation. Like in other reserve teams, new youth players were continuously trained every season and the most useful and valuable were sent up to the major team when ready or needed.

The reserve teams in Portugal played in the same football pyramid as their senior team, rather than a separate league. However, reserve teams couldn't play in the same division as their main team. Therefore, the B teams were ineligible for promotion to the Liga or Liga de Honra. Reserve teams weren't also permitted to enter in the Portuguese Football Cup.

Benfica B played in the Portuguese Second Division when it was closed by Benfica administration in May 2006. They now play the same format but in the Reserve League. Many players left the team for other clubs and smaller leagues, such as players like Tiago Costa and Bruno Aguiar.
