Alumni was the champion, winning its 5° league title in six seasons. The squad won the tournament after a 1-1 draw v. Estudiantes de Buenos Aires, one fixture before the end of the season. The line-up for that match was: José Buruca Laforia; Carlos Carr Brown, Jorge Gibson Brown; Andrés Mack, Patricio Barron Browne, Ernesto Brown; Gottlob Eduardo Weiss, Juan J.
