In the 2000-2001 season Boavista won its first league title. It was only the second time that the competition had been won by a team outside the Portuguese “Big Three” (Os Três Grandes) of Benfica, Porto and Sporting; the first time being Belenenses in the 1945–46 season. So the team had the direct access to the Champions League 2001/2002.
