Portuguese Roller Hockey First Division

The Portuguese Roller Hockey First Division (Portuguese: Campeonato Nacional da Primeira Divisão de Hóquei em Patins or simply 1ª Divisão; literally: Roller Hockey First Division National Championship) is the premier Portuguese roller hockey league. It was founded in 1939 and Sporting CP were crowned as the first champions. Benfica and Porto are record winners with 23 titles each, Porto being the current champions. The league is contested by 14 teams, with the top four teams qualifying for the following season's CERH European League and the fifth to eighth placed teams qualifying for the CERS Cup. The bottom three teams are relegated to the second-tier Portuguese Roller Hockey Second Division.
