In the first year of the championship, 16 teams played in two groups. The team that came first in the group qualified for the final. Galatasaray Istanbul then met Fenerbahçe Istanbul. Galatasaray won the first leg 1-0, but lost the second leg 4-0 and thus Fenerbahçe Istanbul became the first Turkish football champion. The group system was abolished in the following season.
