Cupa Jean Luca P. Niculescu and Cupa Maior Zorileanu 1921

NB: most sources indicate that Tricolor played with their second team in Grupa A
    and their first team in Grupa B; however, the Observator de Bacău reported 
    in 2011 that it was the other way round, suggesting Grupa A served as a first
    and Grupa B as a second level competition (which would explain why the(?) cup
    had two different names attached; in both 1919 and 1920 the spring league had 
    been played for the Cupa Jean Luca P. Niculescu; perhaps the teams in Grupa B
    contested the Cupa Maior Zorileanu).  In any case, both group winners played
    off at the end of the season, with Tricolor (II?) winning the match but Venus
    being declared champions by the federation (which would only make sense if
    the set-up had indeed been one of two different levels).

NB: presumably most matches for which no result is available were forfeited by
    one or both clubs or declared void due to irrelevance (quite possibly
    Universitara withdrew after their match on May 15).

NB: presumably most matches for which no result is available were forfeited by
    one or both clubs or declared void due to irrelevance (quite possibly both
    Universitara II and Venus II withdrew at some stage).

Final [Jun 12]
Tricolor II București              3-2 Venus București                    

NB: for unclear reasons (see above), Venus were declared champions by the federation;
    in any case it appears to require a peculiar point of view to declare the winners
    (or not) of a competition restricted to București national champions of 1920/21
    given that the clubs from Transylvania were unquestionably stronger at the time.
