The men's team foil was a fencing event held as part of the fencing at the 1904 Summer Olympics program. It was the first time a team fencing event was held at the Olympics. 2 teams of 3 fencers each competed. The nationality of the teams is unclear. In the International Olympic Committee's medal database, the winning team is listed as Cuban and American, though each of the three members is listed as Cuban in their individual results. The losing team is listed as American, though one of the members is labeled Cuban for his individual wins. See footnotes for clarification.



Each of the three fencers on each team faced all three of the other team's fencers. The mixed team fencers won 7 of the 9 individual bouts, giving them the team victory.
