The 2012–13 season was Tottenham Hotspur's 21st season in the Premier League and 35th successive season in the top division of the English football league system.

The campaign featured Tottenham's 11th appearance in the UEFA Europa League (formerly the UEFA Cup), entering the group stage due to finishing fourth in the 2011–12 Premier League season but missing out on qualification to the Champions League due to their London rivals Chelsea winning the trophy in 2012. The season was also notable for the fact that Tottenham achieved their record points tally in a Premier League season, 72 points from 38 games. They scored 66 goals and conceded 46 throughout the course of the Premier League season, ending with a goal difference of +20.
