[edit] PES 2012

The league makes its first appearance in PES 2012. Benfica, Porto and Sporting CP are the three teams licensed.

[edit] PES 2013

This instalment saw the exclusions of Uniao Leiria and Feirense after getting relegated to the Segunda liga and the inclusion of Moreirense and Estoril Praia who got promoted from the same league. Braga became the fourth team to be licenced.

[edit] PES 2014

After just one season in the Primeira liga, Moreirense got relegated to the Segunda Liga in real life alongside Beira-Mar and hence were excluded from this instalment, being replaced by Belenenses and Arouca who got promoted from the Segunda Liga, with the former winning it and the latter finishing as runners-up.

[edit] PES 2017

Only two teams are licensed in the game Benfica and Sporting CP
