During the 1992–93 English football season, Sheffield Wednesday competed in the inaugural season of the FA Premier League.

Season summary[edit]

Sheffield Wednesday enjoyed a great season, finishing seventh in the inaugural Premier League season and reaching the finals of both domestic cups, only to be defeated in both by Arsenal. The only negative from an otherwise good season was form in Europe, with the club being knocked out of the UEFA Cup in the second round.
