Major rounds[edit]

The major premiership was contested under the same system which had been adopted by the Victorian Football League in 1898 (except adapted for six teams instead of eight), the six teams were broken into two sections: section A comprised North Adelaide (1st), South Adelaide (3rd) and West Adelaide (5th); section B comprised West Torrens (2nd), Norwood (4th) and Port Adelaide (6th). Each section played an individual round-robin; then, the section winners played off in a final. The minor premiers, North Adelaide, would then have the right to challenge the winner of the final to a Grand Final for the major premiership.
