Season2024

The Liga Pro Serie B, also known as the Ecuadorian Serie B, is the second-highest professional football league in Ecuador. Established in 1971, the league is regulated by the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF). The Serie B serves as a stepping stone for clubs to progress to the top-tier league, the Ecuadorian Serie A.

The league consists of ten teams that compete in a double round-robin format, playing each other twice, both home and away, for a total of 36 matches each season. The top two teams at the end of the season earn promotion to the Serie A, while the bottom two teams are relegated to the Segunda Categoría, the third-tier league in Ecuadorian football.

The Liga Pro Serie B has been a launchpad for several clubs that have gone on to achieve significant success in the Serie A. Clubs like Independiente del Valle and Delfin SC have used their time in Serie B to build strong squads that have competed at the highest level of Ecuadorian football and even in international competitions.

The league has also been instrumental in the development of local talent. Many players have used the platform of the Serie B to showcase their skills before moving on to bigger clubs in the Serie A or abroad. This has helped to strengthen the Ecuadorian national team and has contributed to the overall growth of football in the country.

Throughout its history, the Liga Pro Serie B has faced challenges, including financial instability and logistical issues. However, the league has managed to overcome these obstacles and continues to play a vital role in the Ecuadorian football system. The introduction of the Liga Pro as the new management body for the Serie A and Serie B in 2019 has brought about significant changes, including improved organization and increased investment, which have benefited the Serie B.

The Liga Pro Serie B may not have the glamour and prestige of the Serie A, but it remains a crucial part of Ecuadorian football. It provides a competitive environment for clubs to develop and for players to hone their skills. Its importance to the footballing landscape in Ecuador cannot be overstated.
