In the MRFU, the fall session saw the Winnipeg Football Club (Winnipegs) and the St.John's Rugby Football Club (St.John's) compete. In the spring session of the season, the Royal Canadian Dragoons were added to the competition. The Winnipegs and the St.John's played a final league game to determine the regular season champion.
