[*1] Match finished 2-0 to Hapoel Tel-Aviv, but they played with an ineligible player;
     cup was shared.
[*2] Abandoned at 0-1 to Hapoel Haifa who walked off when a penalty was awarded to 
     British Police; cup duly awarded to British Police.
[*3] the IFA does not list this tournament (known as "War Cup"), in spite of the fact
     that a PFA representative handed Gunners (a British club) the trophy after the
     final held on October 16, 1943 in Petah-Tikva.
[*4] the IFA does not list this tournament (known as "War Cup"); it was boycotted by
     Beitar clubs; the final on January 13 was abandoned after 89 minutes with Hapoel
     Tel-Aviv leading 1-0 when a Hapoel Petah-Tikva refused to leave the field after
     being sent off for insulting the referee.
[*5] Abandoned at 3-2 to Maccabi Tel-Aviv, awarded 3-0.
