1909 Italian Football Championship

In that season two championships of Prima Categoria were played:

  1. Federal Championship (where foreign players were admitted, too)
  2. Italian Championship (where only Italian players were admitted)

The winner of Federal Championship was S.G. Pro Vercelli. They won as prize Coppa Oberti.

The winner of Italian Championship was Juventus. They won as prize Coppa Buni.

However, only Pro Vercelli's Federal title is currently recognized by FIGC as "scudetto".

  1. ^ According to Chiesa, on April 4 was played this match: Juventus-Piemonte 0-0 but this match was never played at that date. The source is Chiesa, op. cit., but Chiesa made some mistake at reporting results and according to La Stampa in April 4 Piemonte played at Genoa against the reserves team of Genoa for the Seconda Categoria Federal Championship Finals, so it's impossible that Piemonte played in the same day two championship matches in two different cities.
