Sporting CP B

Sporting Clube de Portugal B is the reserve team of Portuguese football club Sporting CP, a team based in Lisbon. Reserve teams in Portugal play in the same league system as the senior team, rather than in a reserve team league. However, they cannot play in the same division as their senior team, so Sporting B is ineligible for promotion to the Primeira Liga and could not play in the Taca de Portugal and Taca da Liga. The team play at the Estadio Aurelio Pereira in the Academia Sporting which holds a seating capacity of 1,200.

Sporting had a B team until the end of the 2003–04 season when was dissolved. The team was refounded in the 2012–13 season, when a new set of rules regarding B teams was introduced in Portuguese football system. In that season, another five B-teams were refounded and entered into Segunda Liga. In the 2017–18 season after the creation of a sub-23 championship, club president Bruno de Carvalho announced the end of Sporting CP B.

President Frederico Varandas decided to refound Sporting CP B in 2019. In 2021 Sporting CP B is going to play in Liga 3, a new tier in the Portuguese league system.
