Van Bodegraven-Cup 1931-1935 (Djember)

This tournament was first held in 1931 to celebrate the silver jubilee (in the sense of a 25-year long football career) of Herman "Mantiel" van Bodegraven, a forward who had been the star player of Hercules in Batavia and represented the W.J.V.B. (Batavia city selection) in eleven consecutive editions of the stedenwedstrijden (1915-1925), twice scoring the solitary and thus winning goal in the final (1919 and 1923), who had moved to Djember by 1930 as employee of the B.O.W. (Burgerlijke Openbare Werken), where he captained local club side D.S.V.
All participating clubs were from the residency Besoeki, which encompassed the four easternmost regencies on Java: Bondowoso, Panaroekan, Djember and Banjoewangi.
All matches were played at the D.S.V.-terrein on the Kepatihanweg.
