The 1959–60 season was the 61st season of competitive league football in the history of English football club Wolverhampton Wanderers. They played in the First Division, then the highest level of English football.

The club were narrowly denied a third consecutive league title after Burnley finished one point ahead of them. They did however win both the FA Cup (for a fourth and final time) as well as the FA Charity Shield and also reach the quarter-final stage of the European Cup.
