Liverpool F.C. won its first ever FA Cup, thanks to a 2-1 additional time-victory against Leeds United in the final. The clubs' first final for 50 years, and the resultant title saved a season, in which Liverpool slipped from first to 7th in the domestic league, and collapsed at the hands of Inter in the European Cup semi finals, the clubs' first appearance in international competitions.
Liverpool experimented with red shirts, shorts and socks during this season. The all red strip was used only in a number of European Cup and FA Cup matches, with League matches played in white shorts. The club permanently switched to a full all red strip at the start of the 1965-66 season
