The Football Conference season of 1991–92 (known as the GM Vauxhall Conference for sponsorship reasons) was the thirteenth season of the Football Conference.

Overview[edit]

Colchester United, relegated from the Fourth Division two years earlier, regained their Football League status by winning the Conference title. However, as had happened a year earlier, there was no relegation from the Football League to the Conference due to an expansion of the Football League – which was ultimately never completed due to the bankruptcy of Aldershot late in the 1991–92 season and then Maidstone United (1897) at the start of the 1992–93 season.
