The 2012–13 season was the 121st season in Liverpool Football Club's existence, and their 50th consecutive year in the top flight of English football.

By virtue of winning the 2011–12 Football League Cup, Liverpool automatically qualified for entry into the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League, thus securing an immediate return to European competition.

Pre-season saw a change of manager for Liverpool, with Kenny Dalglish being sacked on 16 May 2012.[1] Brendan Rodgers was unveiled as his replacement on 1 June 2012.[2] Liverpool finished 7th in the Premier League, one place and nine points higher than the 2011–12 season. According to the Forbes' list of the most valuable football clubs published in April 2013, Liverpool were ranked as the 10th most valuable football club in the world.
