|Runners-up||Hapoel Tel Aviv|
The competition started on 17 September 1966 with Liga Bet and Liga Gimel clubs. Liga Alef clubs joined the competition in the fourth round, played on 10 December 1966 and Liga Leumit entered in the sixth round, on 18 February 1967.
Later rounds, starting from the seventh round, which was due to be played on 15 April 1967 and up to the final, were delayed due to Israel youth team involvement in the 1967 AFC Youth Championship, and later due to the Six-Day War (including the preceding waiting period), and the competition was completed at the start of the following season.
For the fifth time since the establishment of the competition, and the first time since 1941 (and since the Israeli Declaration of Independence), Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Tel Aviv met in the final, Maccabi winning 2–1 to collect its 13th cup.
