The 1927 KBUs Pokalturnering (Unofficial English translation: 1927 KBU Cup, 1927 Copenhagen Cup) was the 18th edition of the regional tournament, KBUs Pokalturnering, the highest senior cup competition organized by the regional football organization Copenhagen FA (KBU). The tournament was held in the fall of 1927 with B.93 as the defending cup champions. BK Frem won the 1927 edition by defeating the previous season's cup champions, B.93, 3–2 in the final after 3–0 lead halfway through the second half and an overall even match, played at Københavns Idrætspark on 6 November 1927, which was the BK Frem's second championship in the tournament after seven appearances in the final.[1][2][3] The 8 participants in the tournament included the six members of the 1926–27 KBUs Mesterskabsrække and the two highest placed teams from the 1926–27 KBUs A-række.

The team line-up of Kjøbenhavns BK in the cup match against Akademisk BK consisted mostly of new and young players.[4][5] The winners, Handelsstandens BK, of the 1926–27 KBUs A-række, the second-tier league under Kjøbenhavns Boldspil-Union, managed to reach the second round by defeating the runners-up of the Copenhagen second level league, Østerbros BK, before eventually being eliminated by Østerbro-based B.93.[1][3] The 1st round cup match between Østerbros BK and Handelsstandens BK at Københavns Idrætspark (Idrætsparkens Fodboldbane), for the first time in Danish football, featured numbers (1–22) placed high on back of all outfield players and on the chest of the goalkeepers, meant as a service for the spectators.[6][7][8] The experiment received mixed reviews by the newspapers.[6][7][8] The usage of numbered players at an official Danish game took place shortly after the first try at an unofficial preparation match in English football.[9]

Cup Final[edit]

Match summary[edit]

Winners of the KBUs Pokalturnering 1927 — regular team line-up of BK Frem: Standing: Robert Jensen, Svend Hansen, Pauli Jørgensen, Kaj Uldaler, Carl Stoltz. Kneeling: Kaj Esdal, Kay Madsen, Eiler Holm. Sitting: Carl Johansen, Niels Hansen, Knud Christophersen.[23]

The match was refereed by Lauritz Andersen (affiliated with BK Velo), who had previously refereed two quarterfinal matches in the cup tournament.[24] The final match was played at Københavns Idrætspark for the fifth time in the tournament's history, on 6 November 1927. The draw concerning the right to choose the starting half of the football field was won by Pauli Jørgensen (BK Frem), over the opposing team captain Fritz Tarp (B.93), selecting the goal facing the west side, towards Øster Allé — the choice did not play any significant role during the match as there were no considerable sunlight or wind.[24] The field was reportedly very soft and during the first half, a short-lived breeze fell.[24]

The match, which was delayed 5 minutes, started at a high pace.[24] The first goal was conceived after only 5 minutes by BK Frem's Svend Hansen, when his shot from the right side of the field hit the right goal post projecting inside the net just next to the left goalpost, outside the reach of the 93's goalkeeper, Svend Jensen.[24] The 1–0 lead energizes the BK Frem players, but several attempts do not materialise into an additional goal.[24] After getting an accident with his knee in the 11th minute, BK Frem's Knud Christophersen have to temporarily leave the football field for three minutes to recover.[24] B.93 gets the upper hand with many and the most dangerous attacks with goals prevented safely by the BK Frem goalkeeper, Niels Hansen, while BK Frem are sentenced to several fouls committed in this period.[24] Unexpected, forward Carl Stoltz increase BK Frem's lead to 2–0 upon a powerful kick with him left foot towards the right goal post, placing a renewed pressure on the B.93 players.[24]

The second half took place mostly on the BK Frem's half of the field, where the B.93 players struggled to void the lead made by BK Frem.[24] After several B.93 attempts at the beginning of the second half, BK Frem gets an opportunity in the 63rd minute.[2] BK Frem's forward Robert Jensen shots the ball over Svend Jensen's head, hitting the right goal post farthest away, and bouncing into the goal net near the left goal post, increasing the lead to 3–0 – almost identical to the first BK Frem goal made in the first half.[24] B.93 decided to regroup, placing three of their players, Fritz Tarp as left innerwing, Børge Mørch as left half and Helge Scharff as right back, in positions, that they are not used to playing.[24] B.93 is awarded a corner on the left side after an error committed by BK Frem's defender, Eiler Holm.[24] The following corner kick ends up at Kaj Plaugmann, who makes one single move, and then shots the ball into the roof of the goal with his left foot, finally giving B.93 a goal in the match 4 minutes after BK Frem's last goal, reducing the overall score to 3–1.[24][2] For the remaining part of the second half, there are almost continuous attacks by the B.93's players.[24] With two minutes remaining of the match, B.93 gets their second and the last goal of an overall even match, once again made by Kaj Plaugmann.[24]

BK Frem hence won the 1927 edition of the KBUs Pokalturnering, and were crowned Copenhagen Cup Champions (Danish: KBU pokalmestre), by defeating the previous season's cup champions, B.93, 3–2 in the final after 3–0 lead almost two-thirds into the match, which was the BK Frem's second championship in the tournament after seven appearances in the final.[1][2][3] B.93's forward Børge Mørch and BK Frem's Pauli Jørgensen were highlighted as the best players on the field — though they did not score, they created the opportunities for their colleagues.[24] The Valby-team players celebrated the win in the evening at the Centralbanehotellet situated on Halmtorvet.[24]
