The 1926–27 KBUs Mesterskabsrække was the 39th season of the Copenhagen Football Championship since its establishment in 1889, and the 25th under the administration of Kjøbenhavns Boldspil-Union (KBU).[1] The season was launched with two league matches on 29 August 1926 and the final round of regular league fixtures were played on 8 May 1927 with two matches.[2][3] Boldklubben 1903 were the defending league champions from the 1925–26 KBUs season. The winner of the league would automatically qualify for the national championship final of the 1926–27 Landsfodboldturneringen played at the end of the regular season.[1][4][5] All six teams in the league, including the winner of the 1926–27 KBUs A-række, also participated in the inaugural season of the new Danish Championship play-off structure, the 1927–28 Danmarksmesterskabsturneringen i Fodbold. The same six teams including both the winners and runners-up of the second-tier league, 1926–27 KBUs A-række automatically qualified for the 1927 edition of KBUs Pokalturnering.

The winner of the Copenhagen FA first-tier football league were B.93, with this being their sixth KBU league title, and during the fall season of 1926, the team also secured the championship trophy of the 1926 KBUs Pokalturnering, securing a double.[6] BK Fremad Amager finished in the last place of the league in its debuting season of Copenhagen FA's primary football competition, a year after the club's promotion last season from the second Copenhagen FA-tier, 1925–26 KBUs A-række, but managed to win the first promotion/relegation play-off match against the 1926–27 KBUs A-række winner, Handelsstandens BK, securing their spot in the next season of KBUs Mesterskabsrække as the league's extraordinary participant.[7][2][8][9]

Season summary[edit]

The season was launched on 28 August 1926 with two matches both played at Københavns IdrætsparkBK Fremad Amager against BK Frem and B 1903 against B.93.[2][3][6] The game between BK Fremad Amager and BK Frem was the first official match between the two rival working class teams, which was eventually won by the Amager-based club with the score 6–3.[2][3] The match between the same teams in the spring season on 20 March 1927 was on the other hand won by BK Frem with the score 11–2, which became the highest scoring during the entire season.[2][3]

BK Fremad Amager finished in the last place of the league in its debuting season of the Copenhagen Football Championship, which qualified the team to the promotion/relegation play-offs. The first play-off match was scheduled to take place on 16 June 1927, more than six weeks after the team's last league match on 1 May 1927. As preparation for the play-off match against the 1926–27 KBUs A-række winner, Handelsstandens BK, the club played several friendlies, which included matches against Frederiksborg IF on 18 May at Sundby Idrætspark (lost 2–3), against a selected team from Frederiksberg Boldspil-Union (FBU) on 27 May at Frederiksberg Idrætspark (lost 2–3), against a selected Amager team on 1 June (won 7–1) and against a selected team from Valby Boldspil-Union (VBU) on 10 June at Sundby Idrætspark (lost 7–5).[10][11][12][13]

League table[edit]

A total of six teams were contesting the league, including 5 sides from the 1925–26 season and one promoted from the 1925–26 KBUs A-række. Every team played two games against each other team, one at home and one away. Teams received two points for a win and one point for a draw. If two or more teams were tied on points, places were determined by goal average. The team with the most points were crowned champions. The five regular teams (Danish: ordinære deltagere); B.93, B 1903, Akademisk BK, BK Frem and Kjøbenhavns BK, could basically not be relegated, while the sixth team with the status as an extraordinary participant (Danish: ekstraordinær deltager); BK Fremad Amager had to finish on the 5th place or higher in the final table to avoid qualifying for the promotion/relegation play-off match (referred to as Kvalifikationskamp by the Copenhagen FA) against the winner of KBUs second-tier league for a spot in the next season as the league's extraordinary participant.[14][15][16]

Promotion/Relegation play-offs[edit]

The 6th-placed team of the 1926–27 KBUs Mesterskabsrække met the winners of the 1926–27 KBUs A-række for a spot in the next season of the KBUs Mesterskabsrække as the league's extraordinary participant. The rules, that had been implemented from the beginning of the 1923–24 season, were designed so that winners of the KBUs A-række had to obtain at least three points (two points for a win, 1 point for a tie and 0 points for a loss) over the course of two play-off matches in order for the team to gain promotion.[20][15] The match was played on 16 June 1927 on the main football field of Københavns Idrætspark.[14] Handelsstandens Boldklub fielded the following players in their line-up using a 2–3–5 formation: goalkeeper and captain Karl Christiansen, defenders Kai Petersen and Kaj Dihver, midfielders Viggo Kruse, Poul Jørgensen and Frederik Wieder, forwards Ole Olsen, Ejner Jørgensen, Otto Jørgensen, Henning Nielsen and Ejner Nielsen, while BK Fremad Amager published the following line-up before the match in the same 2–3–5 formation: goalkeeper Schnabelrauch, defenders Frode Marte and Otto Larsen, midfielders Valdemar Henriksen, Knud Kastrup and Knud Petersen, forwards H. Selchau, Alf Olsen, Ernst Quick, Har. Ahrensberg and Bernhard Andersen.[21][22] BK Fremad Amager won the first play-off match with the score 5–3 with all the team's five goals made by Ernst Quick and both clubs therefore remained in their respective tiers for the 1927/28–season – voiding the second play-off match.[9]
