This article lists the seasons played by Cardiff City Football Club from 1910, when they joined the Southern Football League to the most recent completed season. The list details the club's achievements in senior league and cup competitions, and the top scorers for each season.

Cardiff City football club was founded in 1899 as Riverside A.F.C. by members of Riverside cricket club. The club's first year was made up of friendlies against local sides before they were admitted to the Cardiff and District League in 1900 and later the South Wales Amateur League in 1907. Three years later, in 1910, the club moved into the English football league system for the first time by joining Division Two of the Southern Football League.[1]
