The 1994-95 season was Blackpool F.C.'s 88th season (85th consecutive) in the Football League. They competed in the 24-team Division Two, then the third tier of English league football, finishing twelfth.

Sam Allardyce replaced Billy Ayre as manager prior to the start of the season.

Blackpool exited both domestic cup competitions at the first-round stage.

Tony Ellis was the club's top league scorer, with seventeen goals.

Mike Davies retired at the end of the season after eleven years of service for Blackpool, his only professional club. He subsequently moved into a coaching role at the club.

Blackpool signed veteran goalkeeper Les Sealey from Manchester United before the season began, but he transferred back to the Premier League with a move to West Ham on 28 November.
