1985–86 European Cup

The 1985–86 European Cup was the 31st season of UEFA's premier club football tournament, the European Cup. The European Champion Clubs' Cup was won by Steaua București on penalties in the final against Barcelona. Steaua became the first Eastern European side to win the tournament, mainly thanks to the heroics of their goalkeeper Helmuth Duckadam, who after keeping a clean sheet in the final saved all four of Barcelona's penalties to win the cup.

No English club was entered into the competition this year, owing to a ban from European competition after the Heysel Stadium disaster. Had the ban not been imposed, Everton would have represented England in the competition.

Juventus, the defending champions, were eliminated by Barcelona in the quarter-finals.

1985 European Cup Winners' Cup Final

The 1985 European Cup Winners' Cup Final was a football match contested between Everton of England and Rapid Wien of Austria. It was the final match of the 1984–85 European Cup Winners' Cup and the 25th European Cup Winners' Cup final. The final was held at Feijenoord Stadion in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on 15 May 1985. Everton, which dominated throughout, won the match 3–1 thanks to goals by Andy Gray, Trevor Steven and Kevin Sheedy. Everton were unable to defend the trophy: as league champions they would have entered the 1985–86 European Cup, but they were not permitted to play in either competition following the actions of rival Liverpool fans at the Heysel Stadium, which saw all English clubs banned from European competitions.

1985 Intertoto Cup

In the 1985 Intertoto Cup no knock-out rounds were contested, and therefore no winner was declared.

1985–86 European Cup (handball)

The 1985–86 European Cup was the 26th edition of Europe's premier club handball tournament.

1985–86 European Cup Winners' Cup

The 1985–86 European Cup Winners' Cup was won by Dynamo Kyiv in the final against Atlético Madrid. It was their second title in the competition, and first since 1975.

Reigning champions Everton, who initially qualified for the European Cup instead as the 1984–85 Football League champions, and 1985 FA Cup winners Manchester United missed out on European football due to the newly enacted five-year ban on English clubs participating in Europe, following the Heysel Stadium disaster on 29 May 1985.

Even CSKA Sofia did not join, after the riots during the Bulgarian Cup final.

1985–86 Manchester United F.C. season

The 1985–86 season was Manchester United's 84th season in the Football League, and their 11th consecutive season in the top division of English football.Despite having won the FA Cup the previous season, the team was unable to compete in the 1985–86 European Cup Winners' Cup due to the five-year ban on English clubs competing in European competitions that was imposed following the Heysel Stadium disaster at the 1985 European Cup Final. Instead, the clubs who would have qualified for Europe all competed in the Football League Super Cup.

With no European action to distract them, they got off to a 10-match winning start in the league, were unbeaten from their first 15 games, and remained top of the league until the beginning of February, but their dismal post Christmas form dragged them down to a final position of fourth in the league, and there was no success in the cup competitions to fall back on, leading to doubts about the future of Ron Atkinson as manager. He had completed five seasons as manager without them finishing outside the top four and had won two FA Cups, but the wait for a league title was now entering its 20th season.

Media reports linked two managers with a move to Old Trafford: Terry Venables, who had just rejected an offer to return to England from Barcelona to take charge at Arsenal; and Alex Ferguson, whose Aberdeen side had broken the Old Firm dominance of Celtic and Rangers in recent seasons. Despite this speculation, Atkinson remained in charge of United into the following season, but the pressure on him to deliver success to the club remained intense.

The ban on English clubs in European competitions was extended to a second season, meaning that United would not be able to compete in the 1986–87 UEFA Cup.

Mark Hughes was once again United's top scorer, scoring 17 goals in the league and 18 in all competitions. However, he was less prolific during the second half of the season after scoring 11 times before Christmas, and on 21 March 1986 it was announced that he would be leaving United at the end of the season to sign for FC Barcelona of Spain in a £2million deal. United had already signed Nottingham Forest striker Peter Davenport as his successor. United had signed another striker, Terry Gibson from Coventry City, just after the turn of the new year.

United's title challenge was also not helped by the fact that captain Bryan Robson was only available for half of the club's league games this season due to injuries.

1985–86 Red Star Belgrade season

During the 1985–86 season, Red Star Belgrade participated in the 1985–86 Yugoslav First League, 1985–86 Yugoslav Cup and 1985–86 European Cup Winners' Cup.

1986 European Cup Winners' Cup Final

The 1986 European Cup Winners' Cup Final was a football match contested between Atlético Madrid of Spain and Dynamo Kiev of the Soviet Union. It was the final match of the 1985–86 European Cup Winners' Cup and the 26th competition final.

The final game was held at Stade de Gerland in Lyon, France. Kyiv won the match 3–0 thanks to goals by Aleksandr Zavarov, Oleg Blokhin and Vadim Yevtushenko.

1986 Intercontinental Cup

The 1986 Intercontinental Cup was a football match played on 14 December 1986 between River Plate of Argentina, winners of the 1986 Copa Libertadores, and Steaua Bucureşti of Romania, winners of the 1985–86 European Cup. The match was played at the neutral venue of the National Stadium in Tokyo in front of 62,000 fans. Antonio Alzamendi was named as man of the match and got the only goal of the game in the 28th minute when he headed into the net after his initial shot had hit the post and then came back off the goalkeeper.

Galway United F.C.

Galway United Football Club (Irish: Cumann Peile Ghaillimh Aontaithe) is an Irish association football club based in Galway. They play in the League of Ireland First Division.

They were founded as Galway Rovers F.C. during the 1930s. They made their League of Ireland debut in 1977–78 and changed their name to Galway United in 1981–82. After suffering financial difficulties, the club dropped out of the League of Ireland after the 2011 season but in 2014 Galway United returned after initially playing as Galway F.C. for a season.

Per Edmund Mordt

Per Edmund Mordt (born 25 March 1965) is a retired Norwegian football defender and midfielder.

Mordt was born in Oslo. During his club career, Mordt played for Kolbotn IL, Vålerenga IF, IFK Göteborg, SK Brann and Drøbak-Frogn IL. In 1986, at only 21 years of age, Mordt missed the vital penalty kick in the 1985–86 European Cup semi final against FC Barcelona, resulting in the Catalans progressing to the final stage of the tournament at the expense of IFK Göteborg. He also amassed 31 caps for the Norwegian national team, scoring 1 goal.
