The 1984–85 season was the 93rd season in Liverpool F.C.'s existence, and their 22nd consecutive year in the top-flight. As European champions, Liverpool took part in the 1984 Intercontinental Cup in December 1984 against Independiente in Tokyo, where they lost 1-0.

Liverpool reached the 1985 European Cup Final where they faced Juventus. They lost the match 1-0, but the game was overshadowed by crowd trouble where thirty-nine Juventus fans died. Just hours before the match, Liverpool manager Joe Fagan had announced he would retire at the end of the season
