Surinam 1923


Note that the competition below is often not considered an official championship. However, Olympia are clearly described as champions by the contemporary newspaper "Suriname". All participating clubs were members of the S.V.B. at the time, and apart from bottom club Zeelandia all entered the next league competition in 1923/24.
However, this league was the last league competition before the inauguration of the new "Suriname Stadion" on July 29, 1923; instead matches were played at the Patronaatsterrein at the R.K. Ziekenhuis (Roman Catholic Hospital) and thus subject to approval by the R.K. Sportcomité (not to be confused with the K.S.C., the Katholieke Sport Centrale which was by then defunct, nor the K.V.B. (Katholieke Voetbal Bond) founded in 1924).
