Malta entered its champion for the first time this season.

Preliminary round

The draw for the preliminary round took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Tuesday, 4 July 1961.[1] As title holders, Benfica received a bye, and the remaining 28 teams were grouped geographically into two pots. The first team drawn in each pot also received a bye, while the remaining clubs would play the first round in September.
