CAF rejected a protest from ASEC against Stade for fielding players from other clubs; the rules of this tournament permitted the inclusion of former players who had helped the club to win its domestic title in 1962-63. Central-South-Western Zone Oryx Douala (Cameroon) qualified; they were to play the representatives from "Congo" (presumably Congo-Léopoldville) but it is not clear whether any matches were played or Oryx qualified thanks to their opponents forfeiting. The four winners qualified for the final tournament, held in Ghana.
