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 may have been played on only one occasion, although Renaissance de Poto-Poto (Brazzaville) are reported to have won the tournament at some point between 1945 and 1950 by beating a club from Libreville.
A similar (and much better documented) tournament was organised for French Western Africa between 1947 and 1960.
