1964 Eastern Canada Professional Soccer League

Montreal Italia was suspended with two games left following a 5-0 defeat by Toronto Italia. That game was called off with ten minutes left when referee Hugh McLean and Montreal manager Al Cecchi became involved in a dispute and the entire Montreal team was ordered off from the field. The ECPSL decided that Montreal’s two remaining games with Toronto Roma should be forfeited.

The first City-Roma playoff game also counted in league standings because the teams had an outstanding game scheduled for that day.
