Romania - List of Champions


Only since 1921/22 a truly national championship was played for, involving the regional champions from most parts of the country (though the regions around Cernăuţi (now Chernivtsi, Ukraine) and Chişinău (now the independent republic of Moldova) only joined in the mid-20s).
Before, various cup tournaments were played involving clubs from Bucureşti, Ploieşti and occasionally Craiova, all south of the Carpathians. Note that until the end of World War I, Transylvania was part of the Habsburg Empire and ruled from Budapest.
The criteria according to which these tournaments prior to 1921 (most of which were never completely finished) are considered national championships are not entirely clear; see links to the individual seasons for details.
