CalendarEdit

The Yugoslav Cup was a tournament for which clubs from all tiers of the football pyramid were eligible to enter. In addition, amateur teams put together by individual Yugoslav People's Army garrisons and various factories and industrial plants were also encouraged to enter, which meant that each cup edition could have several thousands of teams in its preliminary stages. In the 1962–63 season 2,383 teams were entered, who played through a series of qualifying rounds in an attempt to reach the first round proper, in which they would be paired with top-flight teams.

The cup final was played on 26 May 1963, traditionally scheduled to coincide with Youth Day celebrated on 25 May, a national holiday in Yugoslavia which also doubled as the official commemoration of Josip Broz Tito's birthday.
