(11th Title)
Runners-up Hapoel Haifa

The 1963–64 Israel State Cup (Hebrew: גביע המדינה‎, Gvia HaMedina) was the 25th season of Israel's nationwide football cup competition and the Tenth after the Israeli Declaration of Independence.

For this edition, which began in 21 September 1963, the IFA experimented with the competition's format, holding just one preliminary round, before entering all the teams, including Liga Leumit and Liga Alef teams into the competition in the second round. This move brought high scoring results in matches in which top tier teams met lower tier opponents, including a record 20–0 result in the match between Hapoel Ramat Gan and Liga Gimel team Beitar Ein Karem.

The final, between Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Haifa took two replays to be settled, the first to matches ending with a 1–1 draw. Maccabi Tel Aviv won the third match 2–1 to win its 11th cup.

Second Round[edit]

Matches were played on 5 October 1963. in addition to the 49 match winners from the first round, all the other league teams, including Liga Leumit and Liga Alef teams entered the competition.

Third Round[edit]

Most of the matches were played on 4 and 5 February 1964. However, due to weather conditions, some of the matches were played later during February 1964. Two ties took even longer to be settled. Maccabi Jaffa were beaten at home by Hapoel Ashkelon 3–4 (after leading 3–1 at the 85th minute and conceding three goals at the final five minutes), and appealed the result due to Hapoel Ashkelon fielding an ineligible player. Eventually the IFA ordered a replay, played on 17 June 1964, in which Maccabi Jaffa lost once again. A similar appeal in the tie between Hapoel Netanya and Hapoel Haifa, eventually won 2–0 by the former, resulted at first in a walkover win for Hapoel Haifa, and later in a replay, played on 5 September 1964, in which Hapoel Haifa won 6–1.

Fourth Round[edit]

Following the third round, an intermediate round had to be played in order to bring the number of contestants to 32. 14 of the third round winners were drawn to play, while the other teams received a bye to the fifth round. Matches in this round were all played on 18 February 1964.
