The Liga Profesional de Baloncesto (LPB) is the Venezuelan first division national professional basketball league. Founded in 1974 as Liga Especial de Baloncesto, it adopted the name Liga Profesional de Baloncesto in the 1993 season. Marinos are the team with most championships with 11. The winners and runners-up of each LPB season qualify for the FIBA Americas League regular season. The 2018 season was the last played with the name Liga Profesional de Baloncesto: in 2019 a new competition called Copa LPB was played. In late 2019 the president of the Venezuelan Basketball Federation Hanthony Coello announced the creation of a new league called SuperLiga Profesional de Baloncesto; in March 2020 the Venezuelan Basketball Federation announced that the planning of the new league was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
