Rio de Janeiro State League (Campeonato Fluminense) 1955

The championship of DEP, originally created to represent the state
championship, was turned by the FFD as a Vale do paraíba championship after
the pression of Niterói and Campos' clubs.

The 1955 State Championship was organized in 1956 with the champions and
runners-up[*] of Niterói, Campos and Vale do Paraíba of the 1955 season.

Goytacaz and Barra Mansa ended the championship with the same number of
lost point, and decided the title in a final. With one draw and one win
Goytacaz conquered the 1955 State Championship.

However in 1962 FFD turned back on it's decision and all champions of DEP
were again recognized as state championships. The championship disputed
between the champions of DEP and the Niterói and Campos city leagues became
an extra state tournament, called State Superchampionship.

[*] With the exception of Fluminense Atlético Clube, runner-up of 1955
Niterói City League. The club abandoned profissionalism and was replaced
by the third-placed Cruzeiro Futebol Clube.
