Greenland - List of Champions


The first federation to organise a national football championship in Greenland was the GIF, a general sports federation (not restricted to football only) founded on 3 September 1953 at a meeting attended by representatives of the following 11 clubs: K'ingmeĸ (Upernavik), Malamuk (manaĸ), Nanoĸ (K'utdligssat), K'SP (Godhavn/K'eĸertarssuaĸ), Kugsak (Christianshåb/K'asiginguit), T-41 (Egedesminde/Ausiait), SAK (Holsteinsborg/Sisimiut), Kgssagssuk (Sukkertoppen/Mantsoĸ), Nk (Godthåb/Nk), Nagtoralik (Frederikshåb/Pmiut) and Kigssaviarssuk (Julianehåb/K'aĸortoĸ).
It first organised a football championship in 1954/55 and continued to organise the event until 1970, usually announced as Fodboldturneringen, Grønlandturneringen or Fodboldmesterskab i Grønland. Only since the late sixties it was possible to organise the competition annually; before it was held only once every three years or so, with a single tournament sometimes lasting a year and a half.
In 1971 a football specific federation, the GBU, was founded, and took over the organisation of the tournament.
