1985 European Cup Winners' Cup Final
The 1985 European Cup Winners' Cup Final was a football match contested between Everton of England and Rapid Wien of Austria. It was the final match of the 1984–85 European Cup Winners' Cup and the 25th European Cup Winners' Cup Final. The final was held at Feijenoord Stadion in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on 15 May 1985. Everton, which dominated throughout, won the match 3–1 thanks to goals by Andy Gray, Trevor Steven and Kevin Sheedy. Everton were unable to defend the trophy: as league champions they would have entered the 1985–86 European Cup, but they were not permitted to play in either competition following the actions of rival Liverpool fans at the Heysel Stadium, which saw all English clubs banned from European competitions.
