Greenland 1954/55


NB: first ever edition, organised by the GIF.  Tournament started in 1954 but was only
    finished in November 1955.  In total, 22 clubs registered for the tournament; they
    were usually denoted by their home towns in newspaper reports; however, the two
    finalists were definitely the club sides Nűk and Nagdl˙nguaĸ, and as all known
    participating towns had club sides founded (well) before 1954, those are listed
    below as participants.
