Harold Oduber-wisselbeker

The Harold Oduber-wisselbeker was offered by dr. J. Oduber to the winners of a series of matches between the two main Dutch West Indies islands, Aruba and Curaçao. It was to be contested on 5 occasions, with the island winning most editions keeping the trophy. Eventually only four editions were played, as Curaçao had by then won three times.
Note that on all four occasions two matches were played, a friendly on the first day and the cup match on the second. All results are listed below, with the cup matches in bold face.
