The 2002–03 season was Bristol City Football Club's 105th season in English football, and their fourth consecutive season in the Second Division. It was Danny Wilson's third year in charge of the club since his arrival in July 2000. A third place saw Bristol reach the play-offs, but a 1–0 defeat to Cardiff City in the semi-finals, ended their hopes of league promotion. However, the club saw some success, after reaching the final in the Football League Trophy, where they beat Carlisle United 2–0, but failed to repeat this throughout the rest of the season, as they exited in the third round of the FA Cup, losing to Leicester City, and the first round of the League Cup against Oxford United.

The club's leading goalscorer was Scott Murray, with 27 goals in all competitions.
