WSPF Champions 1902-1903
|1902||Syracuse AC (New York State)|
|1903||Franklin AC (Pennsylvania)|
The World Series of Pro Football was a brief attempt at determining the “World Champions” of American Football that lasted two seasons from 1902 to 1903. It was played as a tournament rather than league, featuring four to five teams.
The first World Series featured five teams: Syracuse AC, New York Knickerbockers, Warlow AC, Orange (New Jersey) AC and a team named New York that was actually made up of players from the Phillies and Athletics from Philadelphia. Syracuse AC won the Series.
The second World series in 1903 was won by Franklin AC of Pennsylvania, with the Oreos AC (Asbury Park, New Jersey), Watertown Red and Blacks and Orange AC the other competing teams.
