The ChampionshipEdit

HistoryEdit

The league was created in 1996, with the aim to improve the most important Brazilian clubs and help the growth of the sport in the country. The league was inspired by the American basketball league (NBA). On April 27, 1996, the Liga Futsal started.

Franchise systemEdit

To be eligible to participate in the league, there are three options available: buy a franchise, be appointed by a company which owns a franchise, or be invited by the league. It is necessary to send a proposal to the Liga Futsal, which will analyze and decide if the team's participation will be accepted, in a general assembly involving all the franchise representatives. Currently, a franchise is worth R$ 300,000.00.

Prize moneyEdit

In 2007 the total prize money was R$ 75,000.00. The winner, besides being awarded R$ 50,000.00 (the runner-up was awarded R$ 25,000.00), won a scudetto, created by the CBFS and represented Brazil in two international competitions (South American Club Futsal Championship and Intercontinental Futsal Cup). The competition organizers also reserved R$ 1,237 million to cover expenses such as transportation, accommodation, food provision and referee taxes for the clubs which participated at least two times in the competition.
