Notes:

(1) The 1915-16 championship was not played due to conflicts between the
    clubs. R Fortuna (Vigo) called themselves as champions while the other
    clubs played the "Campeonato de Honor"; in the final of the latter, 
    R Vigo Sporting defeated Deportivo Auténtico FC (Coruña).

(2) In 1934-35 teams from Galicia and Asturias agreed to play the 
    "Campeonato Astur-Gallego". But it couldn’t be played because of
    political problems in Asturias. So, the three Galician teams played
    their own tournament, which was won by Celta ahead of Deportivo, but
    officially this was not a Galician championship, but the Galician 
    section of the Astur-Gallego. In addition, a "second level" tournament, 
    won by Unión Sporting C. (Lavadores), was played under the name of
    Galician championship.

(3) In 1935-36 Galician teams played the new "Campeonato Astur-Gallego", 
    together with the teams from Asturia; an Asturian team, Oviedo FC,
    were the champions.
