The 1985 FA Cup Final was contested by Manchester United and holders Everton at Wembley Stadiummarker. United won by a single goal, scored in extra time by Norman Whiteside.

Late in the second half, Kevin Moran of Manchester United was sent off for a professional foul on Peter Reid who was clean through on goal. He became the first player to receive a red card in an FA Cup Final. Had Everton won the match they would have completed an unprecedented Treble of League, FA Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup.

All of Manchester United's players (including the substitute who played) had been capped at full international level, making them the first FA Cup winning team to consist entirely of players who had gained full international recognition.

However, United were unable to compete in the following season's Cup Winner's Cup, as all English clubs were subsequently banned from European competitions indefinitely two weeks later as a sequel to the Heysel disastermarker on 29 May 1985, in which rioting by Liverpool fans at the European Cup final resulted in the death of 39 spectators.

Everton had just won the Cup Winners' Cup as well as the league title, and so would have competed in the European Cup for 1985-86 had it not been for the ban.
