    I have an explanation for the differing info on the champions for this year and others. From 1922 to 1951 (the system was also supposed to be in place in 1952, but the championship was cancelled), Sweden crowned two separate champions. The winner of the top league (Klass I 1923-1927, Elitserien 1927-1935, Svenska Serien 1935-1944, and Swedish Division 1 1944-1952) was recognized as "league champions." While the winner of the knockout competition, the Swedish Championship, was regarded as being the country's "official" champion. So for 1951 Djurgarden was the league winner while Hammarby won the knockout championship. Hence Hammarby should be regarded as the Swedish champion in 1951. The same is true for all other seasons in this time period.

    Hope this helps.

    Understandable... It took a while for me to be able to make sense of the system too. It's among the most confusing set-ups I've ever seen.

    Oh and by the way, on the three occasions where the knockout competition wasn't contested (1939, 1949, and 1952), Sweden is regarded as having no official champion. The winters were too warm in 1939 and 1949, thus preventing the competition from being held. The 1952 edition was cancelled due to the national team's preparations for the Olympics.
