Season 1966/67 saw Dunfermline Athletic in the European Fairs Cup.
The first tie was against F.C. Frigg of Oslo. After just eight minutes, Dunfermline were a goal down to a header from Pettersen. Gradually, Dunfermline worked their way back into the tie, and equalised from a goal from Alex Ferguson after a defensive lapse.

The start of the second half in Oslo brought two more goals from Jim Fleming, and that was how it remained. The Glasgow Herald reported that the stand-out players were the Callaghan brothers and Alex Edwards.

The second tie was against Dinamo Zagreb of Yugoslavia. The first leg was at East End Park, and after 55 minutes The Pars were in deep trouble. They were 2-1 down following two Zagreb goals, which outweighed an opener from Pat Delaney.

Then inspired by brilliant wing play from Edwards, Dunfermline came storming back. Alex Edwards converted a penalty and then Alex Ferguson got a brace towards the end of the game. 4-2 to Dunfermline Athletic.

The return leg in Zagreb was hotly contested in a febrile atmosphere. However, two goals from Zambata won the tie for Zagreb despite Dunfermline having their chances and protesting that one of the Yugoslav goals was blatantly off-side.

This was the first season in which ‘Away Goals’ counted double in the event of a tie. The aggregate score was 4-4, and Zagreb went through by virtue of their two goals scored at East End Park.
