The 1966 European Cup Winners' Cup Final was an association football match between Borussia Dortmund of Germany and Liverpool of England on 5 May 1966 at Hampden Park, Glasgow, Scotland. It was the final match of the 1965–66 season of Europe's secondary cup competition, the European Cup Winners' Cup. Both sides were competing in their first European final.
Each club needed to progress through four rounds to reach the final. The rounds were contested over two legs, with a match at each team's home ground. Borussia's ties varied from close affairs to comfortable victories. They beat Atlético Madrid by a single goal over two legs, while they defeated Floriana 13–1 on aggregate in the first round. Liverpool's ties were mainly close affairs. Only one of Liverpool's ties was won by more than two goals.
Watched by a crowd of 41,657, the first half was goalless. Dortmund took the lead in the second half when Sigfried Held scored, Liverpool equalised seven minutes later through Roger Hunt. The scores remained the same to the end of the second half, which meant the match went into extra-time.
