      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.
