ChampionshipEdit

Despite the fact that AA das Palmeiras had left the league the previous year, the championship expanded, with the return of Mackenzie and Internacional. The last four matches of the championship were cancelled because a São Paulo XI team would tour Rio Grande do Sul in November, which would leave the teams short of important players if the matches were to be held.[1]
