ChampionshipEdit

The championship was disputed in a double-round robin system, with the team with the most points winning the title and the two teams with the fewest points being relegated.[1][2] In that season, São Bento de São Caetano entered the championship, that team being the product of a merge between Comercial and São Caetano EC.
