The 1953/54 English Football League Division 1 Champions were Wolverhampton Wanders. This season an event took place that is almost unthinkable in the modern English Premier League with Liverpool finishing bottom of England's 1953 Football League First Division. Liverpool fc would remain outside the English top flight until winning the 1961-1962 English Football Second Division. Wolves' were managed by Stan Cullis whom would take the Wolverhampton club onto two further League Titles. Under Cullis Wolverhampton Wanderers would win the 1957-58 English Football League Division 1 Championship and the 1958/59 Football League Division 1 Championship.

Tom Finney of Preston North End was crowned 1953-1954 Football Writers Association player of the year. Despite being one of the most famous names to pay in the English League one club man Finney would never win any trophy. The closest he came winning a trophy was during the 1952/53 English Football League 1st Division season when Preston North End came second to Arsenal fc through goal Average only. Despite this statistic Finney is still considered a Football Great. The Footballer to top the Goal Scoring charts was Jimmy Glazzard of Huddersfield Town.
