The Troféu António Pratas (English: António Pratas Trophy) is an annual cup competition for Portuguese basketball teams organized by the Portuguese Basketball Federation. Created in 2007 to honour António Pratas, its first edition was only open to Proliga clubs. A year later, it expanded to include teams from the Liga Portuguesa de Basquetebol and has since established itself as a "curtain-raiser" for the season. Played in early October in two different levels, Proliga and LPB, each winner receives a trophy for their respective competition. After the inaugural season won by Benfica, its second had six winners in the three different regions. Its third year was a one-off edition were both leagues played together. Since 2010, the competition stabilized in the current format, where a qualification stage pre-dates a Final Four, which determines the winner. Benfica has five wins at LPB level, and Illiabum three at Proliga.
