The 1990–91 season was the 92nd season of competitive league football in the history of English football club Wolverhampton Wanderers. They played in the second tier of the English football system, the Football League Second Division. The team finished in 12th place after a poor run of form at the end of the season brought only two victories from the final fifteen matches.

This was the first season – of an eventual seventeen – for the club under the ownership of Sir Jack Hayward, who had purchased it in May 1990 for £2.1 million.[1]
