Play-off[edit]

As Ittihad and Darnes were level on points, the Libyan Football Federation decided that a play-off match would be played.

Al Ittihad won the play-off 2–0, and therefore became Libyan Premier League champions for the second time, becoming the first side to retain the championship. They also became the first Libyan club to represent Libya at continental level, as they participated in the 1967 African Cup of Champions Clubs, where they went on to the quarter-finals.
