As a reserve team, Porto B cannot compete in the same division as their senior team, and are thus ineligible for promotion to the top-tier Primeira Liga. In addition, they cannot take part in other domestic competitions, such as the Taça de Portugal and Taça da Liga.

HistoryEdit

RevivalEdit

Prior to the end of the 2011–12 season, seven Primeira Liga clubs announced their interest in creating a B team to fill the six vacancies available in for the 2012–13 Segunda Liga season.[2] Six of these clubs were selected to have their B teams take part in the competition: Benfica, Braga, Marítimo, Porto, Sporting CP, and Vitória de Guimarães.[3]

The LPFP, which governs professional football in Portugal, announced that for B teams to compete in the 2012–13 Segunda Liga they would have to pay a fee of €50,000.[4] In addition, the LPFP would also require teams to follow new rules regarding player selection, such as having a minimum of ten players formed at the club's academy and with an age requirement of 15–21 years old, with a maximum of three players above 23 years old allowed. The LPFP also decided that B teams were ineligible to compete in cup competitions, as well as gaining promotion to the Primeira Liga due to the possibility of playing against the senior team.

In late May 2012, it was officially announced that the B teams of six Primeira Liga clubs would compete in the 2012–13 Segunda Liga. This decision resulted in an expansion of the number of teams from 16 to 22, and the number of matches from 30 to 42.[5]
