FormatEdit

The Cup begins with a two-legged round between teams from Liga de Honra (second level). Winners join the clubs classified 7th–14th from last season's Portuguese Liga (first level) plus two promoted to this season's Liga. There are six groups of three teams each, and every team play two games (once home and once away). Winners of the groups join the top six teams from the last season's Portuguese Liga and there will be three groups of four teams, each team playing three games. Winners of the groups and the best second-placed team compete in the one-legged semifinals, with the winners advancing to the final.

Participating clubsEdit

On the following day, Penafiel and Carregado were invited to the professional leagues and, after both accepting, they officially joined the league on July 28.
