The 1976 European Cup Winners' Cup Final was a football match between West Ham United of England and Anderlecht of Belgium. The final was held at Heysel Stadium in Brussels on 5 May 1976. It was the final match of the 1975–76 European Cup Winners' Cup tournament and the 16th European Cup Winners' Cup Final.

Match summary

Pat Holland put West Ham into the lead in the 28th minute. Just before half-time, Frank Lampard misjudged a backpass, allowing Peter Ressel to collect the ball and pass it to Rob Rensenbrink to score the equaliser. In attempting the backpass, Lampard tore a stomach muscle that ruled him out of much of the remainder of the game. Three minutes into the second-half, François van der Elst scored, assisted by Rensenbrink. Keith Robson later equalised for West Ham from a cross by Trevor Brooking. Anderlecht were awarded a contested penalty in the 73rd minute, after a foul by Holland on Rensenbrink who then scored from the penalty. With two minutes left, as West Ham pushed forward, van der Elst ran through to score Anderlecht's fourth goal.
