The Taça da Liga, commonly known outside Portugal as the Portuguese League Cup, is an association football competition. It is organised by the Liga Portuguesa de Futebol Profissional (LPFP), and is played between teams that play in the Primeira Liga and LigaPro, the top 2 divisions of Portuguese football.[1] The Taça de Portugal winner does not qualify for European competitions.

It was established during the 2007–08 season, and became the third official competition for professional clubs in Portugal.[1] For sponsorship reasons, it is currently known as Allianz Cup.
