The 1967 Campeonato Ecuatoriano de Fútbol (English: Ecuadorian Football Championship) was the 9th national championship for football teams in Ecuador. This season marked the first time the national championship was contested as a league and not as a tournament in which teams had to qualified for. With the creation of the Segunda Categoria this same season, a system of promotion and relegation was also implemented.

El Nacional won their first national title this season, just three years after being founded.

Teams[edit]

Ten teams participated this season (home city in parenthesis).
