Season Summary

Season 179 of the A·F·L began with the Super Cup, which was won by Arsenal for the second season in a row, with a 3—2 victory against Stoke City in the final.

In the league, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal set the early pace, with Stoke City just behind the leading pack. Manchester City were further back but improved in the second half of the season to become the main challengers for the title. However, they faded in the last few games and Liverpool took over second place, allowing Tottenham to take the title by a margin of 9 points. It is Tottenham's 16th title in the A·F·L, and their fifth in the last nine seasons. Liverpool and Manchester City took the other two Euro-League places. Arsenal, Stoke City and Chelsea qualified for the Euro-Cup. At the bottom, Reading dropped back into the Championship, accompanied by Derby County and Wigan.

In the Championship, Huddersfield and Brighton started well, although Burnley joined the race for promotion at around the halfway stage of the season. Brighton fell out of contention towards the end and Burnley put on a late surge to take the title from Huddersfield, who took the other automatic promotion position. Brighton finished third, but won the play-offs to book their place in the top division next season. At the bottom, Blackburn were relegated for the second season in a row. Crewe will drop into League One along with them.

The A·F·L Cup was won by Liverpool, their seventh in the history of the competition, after defeating Manchester City in the final. The final was drawn after 120 minutes and went to penalties. After ten penalties each the Merseyside team won by 8 penalties to 7.
