The 19921993 season was the 93rd completed season of The Football League.

This season saw the birth of the FA Premier League. This meant a break-up of the 104-year-old Football League that had operated until then with four divisions.

In 1992 all of the First Division Clubs resigned from the football league and, on 27 May 1992, the FA Premier League was formed as a limited company, which worked out of an office at the then Football Association’s headquarters, Lancaster Gate.

The three divisions which remained in the Football League were renamed. The old Division Two was now called Division One. The old Division Three was now called Division Two, and the old Division Four was now Division Three. The league was sponsored this season by Barclays.

Football League Division One[edit]

Newcastle United’s first full season under the management of Kevin Keegan ended in Division One championship glory and promotion to the Premiership, where they remained for 16 seasons until relegation at the end of the 2008–09 season. Following the Geordies into football’s big-money league were West Ham United and Swindon Town. West Ham had suffered relegation just one season earlier, and had been many people’s favourites for an automatic return to the elite. Swindon, meanwhile, had finally reached the top flight after 73 years of trying — they had actually won promotion via the play-offs three years earlier, but promotion had been denied a few weeks later due to financial irregularities.

Going down were Cambridge United (who had just missed out on promotion a year earlier and are now in the Conference), Brentford and Bristol Rovers. Brentford, newly promoted a season earlier, had stood in 10th place at the turn of 1993, but a sharp decline in form during the final few months of the season saw them relegated on the final day of the season.

Third-placed Portsmouth had opened up a 9-point gap over fourth-placed Tranmere Rovers, but lost to Leicester City in the playoff semi-finals and this ended any promotion hopes for a club who had begun the season as favourites for promotion, and ended it with 88 points.

Football League Division Two[edit]

Lou Macari guided Stoke City to their first successful season in years as they were crowned Division Two champions. Bruce Rioch brought some long-awaited success to Bolton Wanderers as they occupied the division’s second promotion place. Osvaldo Ardiles guided West Bromwich Albion to promotion via the play-offs, bringing some long-awaited success to another club who had once enjoyed better times.

Preston North End, Wigan Athletic, Mansfield Town and Chester City occupied Division Two’s four relegation places. Mansfield were newly promoted, while the other three teams had been established at this level for no less than six years.

Football League Division Three[edit]

Cardiff City and Wrexham continued their good progress by occupying Division Three’s top two places. They were joined in third place by Barnet, who had spent most of the season on the brink of expulsion from the league due to financial problems. The final promotion place went to York City, who won the play-offs just weeks after Alan Little was appointed manager.

Halifax Town, after 72 years of league membership, finished bottom of the league and were replaced by Conference champions Wycombe Wanderers. Maidstone United went out of business on 17 August after their first game was postponed, and were not replaced.
