The 1975-76 season was Liverpool's 84th season of football since they were established. Having been runners-up the previous two seasons, Liverpool reclaimed the league championship, finishing just one point ahead of their closest competitor. The UEFA Cup also brought success, with Liverpool beating Bruges in the final. The FA Cup and League Cup campaigns were less successful, as Liverpool went out in the early rounds in both.
