Championship format

Each team of has to play with all the other teams of its division twice, once at home and the other at the opponent's arena.

Each victory adds two points to the team in the league ranking, while each loss adds only one. At the end of the league:

  • The winner of the Regular season promotes directly to Liga ACB.
  • Teams qualified between second and ninth position play the promotion play-offs, where the winner promotes with the regular season champion to Liga ACB.
  • The worst or the two worst teams are relegated to LEB Plata.

At the half of the league, the two first teams in the table play the Copa Príncipe at home of the winner of the first half season. The Champion of this Cup will play the play-offs as first qualified if it finishes the league between the 2nd and the 5th qualified.

LEB History

The second division before LEB Oro

Before 1996, teams promoted to Liga ACB from other second division leagues. The number of teams promoted varies each year.

LEB Plata

The LEB Plata is the Spanish basketball third league since 2001, the second division of the leagues organized by the Spanish Basketball Federation. The best teams promotes to LEB Oro and the last qualified ones are relegated to Liga EBA.

LEB Bronce

In 2007, the Spanish Basketball Federation decided to create a third LEB with 18 teams, like the other two. Since that day, renamed LEB as LEB Oro (LEB Gold) and LEB-2 as LEB Plata (LEB Silver). This new league was called LEB Bronce, three first teams were promoted each year to LEB Plata and the four last teams were relegated to Liga EBA.

LEB Bronce had also its Cup, like the other LEBs. In 2009, after two seasons, LEB Bronce was removed due to the difficulties of the teams that enjoyed the new league.
