Winners club national championship

- Germany: The 1922 championship was not awarded. Hamburger SV and 1. FC Nuremberg had qualified for the final and played two matches, which finished 2-2 and 1-1, both after extra time. The second match was abandoned after Nuremberg had only 7 players left (8 were at the time required); initially the title was awarded to HSV (since Nuremberg had caused the abandonment), but this was revoked after an appeal by Nuremberg; another appeal by HSV followed, and at an extraordinary general meeting of the German FA they were awarded the title again, but they declined to accept it.
