The 1927–28 KBUs Mesterskabsrække was the 40th season of the Copenhagen Football Championship since its establishment in 1889, and the 26th under the administration of Kjøbenhavns Boldspil-Union (KBU).[1] The season was launched on 21 August 1927 with a match between BK Fremad Amager and B.93 at Københavns Idrætspark and concluded in May 1928 with the final round of regular league fixtures, with the play-off promotion/relegation match being held on 4 July 1928.[2][3][4][5] B.93, playing in white shirts, were the defending league champions from the 1926–27 KBUs season. The Copenhagen FA first-tier league ran simultaneously with the inaugural edition of the 1927–28 Danmarksmesterskabsturneringen i Fodbold, in which all of the league's teams participated. All six teams in the league, including the winners and the runners-up of the 1927–28 KBUs A-række automatically qualified for the 1928 edition of KBUs Pokalturnering, while the same teams and the third placed team of the 1927–28 KBUs A-række qualified for the 1928–29 Danmarksmesterskabsturneringen i Fodbold.[6]

Østerbro-based B.93 won their second consecutive title of the league and their 7th overall KBU league championship, while B 1903 also finished as runners-up for the second year in a row.[7] BK Frem, at that time based in the Vesterbro-area of Copenhagen, secured the regional cup title by defeating the defending cup champions, B.93, in the 1927 KBUs Pokalturnering final.[2][3] BK Fremad Amager finished last in the Copenhagen FA's primary football league, but managed to win the first promotion/relegation play-off match against the 1927–28 KBUs A-række winner, Hellerup IK, securing their spot in the next season of KBUs Mesterskabsrække.[3][8][9]

Season summary[edit]

Regular league team line-up including reserves of B.93 in 1928, the winners of the 1927/28-season of KBUs Mesterskabsrække. Back row (standing from left to right): Leo Hansen, Michael Rohde, Svend Petersen, Anthon Olsen, Georg Hansen, William Gram. Center row (sitting from left to right): Ejnar H. Hansen, Fritz Tarp, Poul Zølck, Poul Jensen, Helge Scharff, Charles Jensen, Knud Andersen. Front row (sitting on grass): Svend Jensen.[10]

The defending league champions from the previous season, the Østerbro-based club B.93, played the inaugural match on 21 August 1927 at Københavns Idrætspark against BK Fremad Amager, that had finished in the last spot of the league in the previous season.[4][11] BK Fremad Amager had made some changes in the line-up, which now included a new goalkeeper, Heinrich Hansen, as a replacement for last season's player in that position, Schnabelrauch.[12] The first match of the season was played in puring rain, lightning and thunder, and although much of the football field was under water, the game was not cancelled by the referee, Otto Remke (affiliated with Akademisk BK).[13][12] The first goal of the match — which was attended by 3,000-4,000 spectators — and the season, was made after only 3 minutes of play by the BK Fremad Amager inner winger, Henrik Selschau, by scoring between the legs of B.93's goalkeeper, Svend Jensen.[13][11]

For the new season, Kjøbenhavns BK had reconstructed their first senior team's line-up, so it consisted mostly of new and young players, having played in the youth team's league under the Copenhagen FA — only the old players, and national team player, the midfielders Valdemar Laursen and Aage Jørgensen, and the defender Steen Steensen Blicher were kept on the roster.[14][15][16] The two teams, Kjøbenhavns BK and BK Frem, reportedly fielded the youngest rosters in the league, when they meet each other in their first season match on 11 September 1927 at Københavns Idrætspark.[17] The match originally ended in a 1–1 draw, but Kjøbenhavns Boldspil-Union (KBU) later administratively changed the score to 0–0! and awarded Kjøbenhavns BK the game as a 2 points victory due to the BK Frem player Eiler Holm being used illegally after having played on the club's reserve team earlier in the fall of 1927.[3]

The first senior tournament match for Carl "Skoma'r" Hansen after his return to Danish football and his former status as an amateur football player, following a 2 years mandatory suspension period for having played as a professional for the Scottish side Rangers F.C. (1921–1925) as the first Danish professional player abroad, was originally scheduled for the league match against Kjøbenhavns BK on 23 October 1927, but the match was cancelled 20 minutes before start due to the severe weather conditions of rain and storm.[18]

League table[edit]

A total of six teams were contesting the league, all 6 sides from the 1926–27 season. A double round-robin schedule was used as 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, while the team with the least points would enter a promotion/relegation play-off.

Promotion/Relegation play-offs[edit]

The 6th-placed team of the 1927–28 KBUs Mesterskabsrække met the winners of the 1927–28 KBUs A-række for a spot in the next season of the KBUs Mesterskabsrække.[25] 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.[26] BK Fremad Amager won the first play-off match against Hellerup IK with the score 3–1 (all scored in the first half of the game) and both clubs therefore remained in their respective tiers for the 1928/29–season – voiding the second play-off match.[5]
