The 1963 African Cup of Nations was the fourth edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, the association football championship of Africa (CAF). It was hosted by Ghana. For the third consecutive time the hosts won the African Cup. The format changed: two groups of 3 teams each, the winners played the final, the runners-up could only play Third Place final. The final in Accra on 1 December saw the hosts winning 3-0 on Sudan, after the first half finished 0−0.
This tournament, and the previous one, are the only Africa Cup of Nations tournaments with more than four goals-per-game average.
