History (England)

Wolverhampton Wanderers missed out on a hat-trick of Championships as well as the double of League and FA Cup by losing their final home game to Tottenham Hotspur. Burnley won 2 - 1 away at Manchester City to go top for the first time in the season and win their first Championship since 1921.

Birmingham City became the first English club to reach a European final (Fairs Cup). They were invited into next season's Fairs Cup.

A new European competition began: the Cup Winners Cup. This was open to winners of the national cups (like the FA Cup). Wolverhampton Wanderers qualified for the first tournament.

History (Europe)

Real Madrid completed a record five successive wins in the European Cup
