The 1914–15 season was Manchester City F.C.'s twenty-fourth season of league football and fifth consecutive season in the First Division of English football. With the start of the First World War, it was to be the last season of regular league football until 1919. In the intervening years, all teams played in the War Leagues, which were non-competitive and are considered to be null in club history.
