Vitória FC and Desportivo das Aves Relegated to the Campeonato de Portugal

In a shocking twist that has broken in the last couple of minutes, both Desportivo Das Aves and Vitória FC (Setúbal) have been relegated to the Campeonato de Portugal, the third division of Portuguese football, due to “non-fulfilment of the necessary requirements for the registration of the respective teams in professional championships.”

As a result, Portimonense will remain in the Primeira Liga despite being relegated this season. Casa Pia and Cova da Piedade will also remain in the LigaPro despite being demoted to the Campeonato de Portugal.

This decision is not yet final and can be appealed by both clubs to the Justice Council of the FPF (Federação Portuguese de Futebol)
