The two clubs had been the main challengers for the league title the previous season, with Burnley pipping Wolves by just a single point. This denied the Midlands club a third successive league championship, and the first 'double' of the 20th Century.

The match was staged at Burnley's home ground, Turf Moor. The game ended a 2–2 draw, meaning the Shield was shared.
