On 8 April 2020, the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) cancelled all non-professional competitions due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Portugal. The following month, on 2 May, the FPF ruled that Vizela and Arouca, the two teams with the most points in all first-stage series at the time of cancellation, were promoted to the 2020–21 LigaPro. No league winner title was awarded and no teams were relegated to the District championships.[1]

FormatEdit

The competition format consisted of two stages. In the first stage, the 72 clubs were divided in four series of 18 teams, according to geographic criteria. In each series, teams played against each other in a home-and-away double round-robin system. The two best-placed teams in each series would advance to the second stage, while the five bottom teams would be relegated to the District championships. In the second stage, the eight teams disputed a series of double-legged home-and-away play-off matches, and the two play-off finalist teams would be promoted to the 2020–21 LigaPro.[2]
