Tournament for the former French Equatorial African territories. This area comprised the current states of the Central African Republic (then Oubangui-Chari), Chad (Tchad), Congo-Brazzaville (then Moyen Congo) and Gabon. It apparently was played on only one occasion.
A similar (and much better documented) tournament was organised for French Western Africa between 1947 and 1960.
