The 1963–64 British Football League is the sixth season of the British Football League after the British Football Association declared on creating the league to unite the country in a football league. The same sixteen teams that competed in the previous season would compete in this season. Much like the previous season, Rangers conceded a lead in the early part of the season and did have a chance to win the final match of the season against eventual champions Tottenham Hotspur but would lose 3-0.

This also saw the last season for Wrexham in the Football League with them being relegated to The Football League for only the single season until the Welsh league was created.
