Difficulties in securing passports for Racing Club's players in time for the September final in Guadalajara caused the match to be postponed three times. After CD Guadalajara's protest to CONCACAF in February 1964, the governing body declared that club to be champions, but changed their minds after a counter-protest, instead deciding that both legs of the final should be played within two months of 2 April 1964. This decision caused CD Guadalajara to scratch from the competition because they were on a European tour during that period, so the title was awarded to Racing Club without any match being played.
