Note: Before 1945, the clubs of a dissident association (TUL) did not
      participate in the competitions arranged by the Finnish FA (SPL),
      so the SPL champions of 1908-1944 were automatically declared the
      Finnish champions as well.

From 1945 to 1948, the Finnish championship was decided in a final
tournament, which was entered by the best teams of the SPL and TUL
internal championships. The SPL champions during those years were:

1945  TPS Turku
1946  VIFK Vaasa
1947  VIFK Vaasa
1948  VIFK Vaasa

TUL champions since 1920.
