The 1967–68 European Cup was the 13th European Cup, UEFA's premier club football tournament. The competition was won by Manchester United, who beat Benfica 4–1 in the final at Wembley Stadium, London. The European Cup title marked the 10th year since the Munich air disaster, in which eight United players were killed and their manager, Matt Busby, was left close to death. It was also the first time that an English side had won the trophy.

The away goals rule (which had already been used in the Cup Winners' Cup and the Fairs' Cup) was introduced if aggregate scores were level after two legs, but only for the first round of the competition; extra time goals were not included in the rule.

Celtic, the defending champions, were eliminated by Dynamo Kyiv in the first round.
