S.V.B. Competitie The league started on Nov 9, 1947, and lasted for over 2 years due to a great influx of new clubs (including former N.G.V.B. members such as N.A.K.S. and Spes Patriae; however, it would appear a number of clubs (including Mata Hari and N.A.K.S.) later returned to the N.G.V.B.) and interruptions caused by trips and visiting sides (e.g. Trinidad in March 1948 and Brazilian club side Tuna in September 1949). Participants to finish the league included: Hollandia M.V.V. Paranam P.V.V. Robinhood Spes Patriae Transvaal Voorwaarts (defending champions) Other clubs to play one or more matches: Arsenal Atlas H.V.V. Mata Hari N.A.K.S. Known results (it is not clear whether all matches below belonged to the league; matches in italics presumably were lower class matches or friendlies) [Nov 9, 1947] Mata Hari 3-2 N.A.K.S.

Top Final Table: 1.M.V.V. 2.Robinhood NB: as M.V.V., Robinhood, Transvaal, Voorwaarts, Hollandia, Spes Patriae and P.V.V. formed the Eerste Klasse for the 1950/51 season, it may be assumed those clubs finished in the first seven places, while Paranam (and Arsenal, Atlas and H.V.V., if they remained playing in the league until the end, which is not clear) were apparently relegated.
