The football competition at the 1964 Summer Olympics started on October 11 and ended on October 23. Only one event, the men's tournament, was contested.. The tournament features 14 men's national teams from six continental confederations. The 14 teams are drawn into two groups of four and two groups of three and each group plays a round-robin tournament. At the end of the group stage, the top two teams advanced to the knockout stage, beginning with the quarter-finals and culminating with the gold medal match at the Olympic Stadium on October 23, 1964. There was also three consolation matches played by losing quarter-finalists. The winner of these matches placed fifth in the tournament.[1]

Qualification

Regional qualifying tournaments were held. A riot in Lima during the decisive PeruArgentina match resulted in 328 deaths.[2]

16 teams qualified and were divided into 4 groups:

Two best teams of each group competed in the quarter-finals.

Italy and Korea D.P.R. withdrew: Italy because their team was not amateur, and North Korea because some Koreans were prevented from playing.
