The African Cup of Champions Clubs 1967 was the 3rd edition of the annual international club football competition held in the CAF region (Africa), the African Cup of Champions Clubs. It determined that year's club champion of association football in Africa.

Contents

The tournament was played by 18 teams and used a knock-out format with ties played home and away. TP Englebert from Congo-Kinshasa won the final, and became CAF club champion for the first time.

Prelimanary Round

1 Augustinians FC withdrew.

First round

1 Diamant Yaoundé, Invincible Eleven and Bitumastic withdrew.
2 TP Englebert won after a drawing of lots.

1 Al-Ittihad withdrew.

Final

1 At the end of extra time of the second leg, the referee decided that lots would be drawn to attribute the trophy on the next day, but the CAF secretary-general later arrived with regulations that a third match be played. The decider was set for December 27, in Yaoundé, Cameroon, but Asante Kotoko did not show up (apparently not having been informed of the match arrangements by the Ghanaian FA), and TP Englebert were declared champions.
