The 1973 FA Charity Shield was contested between Burnley and Manchester City in a fixture that took place at Maine Road.[1] For the third consecutive year, neither the reigning Division One champions (Liverpool) nor the reigning FA Cup holders (Sunderland) chose to compete; instead, Burnley, the reigning Second Division champions, were invited to play Manchester City, the reigning holders of the Shield [2]

Burnley won the match 1–0 thanks to a goal from defender Colin Waldron.
