The Campeonato Amazonense, officially Campeonato Amazonense de Futebol Profissional, is the football championship for professional clubs of the state of Amazonas, Brazil.

Format

The Campeonato Amazonense is divided into Taça Amazonas and Taça Cidade de Manaus.

Taça Amazonas

  • Standard round-robin, in which all teams play each other once.

Taça Cidade de Manaus

  • Teams are divided in two groups of five.
  • First stage: standard round-robin, in which teams play each other once within the group.
  • Second stage: One leg playoffs with the top 2 teams of each group.

If a team wins both Taça Amazonas and Taça Cidade de Manaus, it is crowned the state champion. If not, a home-and-away playoff with the winners is disputed, and the winner is declared the state champion.

As in any other Brazilian soccer championship, the format can change every year.
