The 1975 Football League Cup Final took place on 1 March 1975 at the old Wembley Stadium. It was contested between Aston Villa and Norwich City. To date it is the only time a major domestic Cup Final that has been played at Wembley Stadium between two clubs where neither were then currently in top-flight football (both teams were however promoted at the end of the season). Aston Villa won 1–0, to claim their second League Cup final victory. Ray Graydon scored the only goal of the game, following up after goalkeeper Kevin Keelan had saved his penalty onto the post.

The victorious Aston Villa manager, Ron Saunders, appeared in his third successive League Cup Final with his third different club, having been a losing manager with Norwich City in 1973 and Manchester City in 1974.
