The 1965 CONCACAF Championship, the second edition of the CONCACAF Championship, was held in Guatemala from 28 March to 11 April.

Qualifying Tournament[edit]

Caribbean zone[edit]

Jamaica, Trinidad, Dominican Republic withdrew from qualifying due to a schedule clash with qualification for the 1966 FIFA World Cup.

Hosts of the final tournament, Guatemala refused to grant the Cubans visas to visit the country.

Cuba complained to Helmut Käser, FIFA's General Secretary requesting for FIFA not to recognise CONCACAF. Käser stated that FIFA could not do so and referred the issue of Guatemalan visas for the Cubans to CONCACAF. As they were not able to enter the competition, Cuba withdrew.

Haiti and Netherlands Antilles automatically qualified for the final round.[1]

Central American zone[edit]

Panama withdrew prior to the qualifying tournament beginning.[1]

  1. ^ The match was abandoned after Mexican player Guillermo Sepúlveda refused to leave the field having been sent off in the 72nd minute. The match was ordered to be replayed by CONCACAF but Costa Rica threatened to withdraw from the competition. The next day CONCACAF reversed their decision allowing the 1–1 result to stand.[2][3][4]
