CompetitionLeague Cup Final
VenueWembley Stadium
Attendance98,189
Kick Off: 15:30 BST Scores at 90 minutes were 1-1 so extra time was played. As both sides' colours clashed, League Cup rules stated that both would have to play in their alternative kits. Arsenal wore their yellow and dark blue strip, and Swindon Town opted to wear an all-white kit instead of their usual alternative of all-blue. Although League Cup winners, Swindon were ineligible for a place in the UEFA Cup of 1970. At the time the competition was only open to teams from Division One. The Anglo-Italian and Anglo Italian League Cups were created in lieu of a proper European competition for the club to compete in. Swindon went on to win the Anglo-Italian League Cup in 1969 and the Anglo-Italian Cup in 1970.
