The 1964 AFC Asian Cup was the third AFC Asian Cup football tournament. The finals were held in Israel from May 26 to June 3, 1964.
The tournament used a round-robin system with the winners from the West, Central 1 and 2 and East Asia zones and the team from the host nation (Israel) competing for the title. 11 of the 16 nations withdrew including Iran and Japan with the result that only one zone (combined Central 1 and 2) played any qualifying matches and the 'winners' of 2 zones and host Israel qualifed uncontested. In this diminished competition Israel won the title with three wins.
