Season 1967-68

The 1967–1968 season was the 68th completed season of The Football League.

For the first time since 1937 Manchester City won the league title, finishing two points clear of their local rivals Manchester United. Fulham finished bottom of the league and were relegated along with Sheffield United. Coventry City, under Jimmy Hill, escaped relegation by one point and would go on to stay in the top division until their eventual relegation at the end of the 2000–01 season.

Bill McGarry's Ipswich Town team won the Second Division by one point from Queens Park Rangers, with both teams promoted. Blackpool finished third on goal average and so missed out. Rotherham United and bottom club Plymouth Argyle were both relegated to the Third Division.

Oxford United won their first divisional title and achieved what was then their highest ever finish in only their sixth season as a league club in the Third Division. Runners-up Bury joined them in promotion. Grimsby Town, Colchester United and Scunthorpe United were relegated, although the biggest story concerned bottom placed Peterborough United who were deducted 19 points for offering irregular bonuses to their players. Had the points been restored the club would have finished in the top half. As a result of the ruling Mansfield Town escaped relegation.

Luton Town won the Fourth Division and were promoted along with Barnsley, Hartlepool United and Crewe Alexandra. No clubs were voted out of the league.
