The Fussball Club Basel 1893 1990–91 season was their 97th season since the club's foundation. Charles Röthlisberger was the club's chairman for the third consecutive year. FC Basel played their home games in the St. Jakob Stadium. Following their relegation in the 1987–88 season this was their third season in the second tier of Swiss football.

Overview[edit]

Ernst August Künnecke returned to the club five years after he was sacked in 1985. He took over from Urs Siegenthaler as first-team coach. After missing promotion the previous two seasons, the club's repeated priority aim was to return to the top flight of Swiss football. Basel were assigned to the South East group. They ended their 22 matches in the Qualifying Phase with 9 victories, 8 draws and 5 defeats with 26 points in a disappointing fourth position in the league table. The team scored 40 goals and conceded 30.

Basel qualified for a Promotion group and were assigned to group A. Also qualified for this group from the Nationalliga B were Chiasso, Yverdon-Sports, Fribourg, Baden and Etoile Carouge. Fighting against their relegation from the Nationalliga A were St. Gallen and Wettingen. Basel ended their 14 matches in the Promotion/Relegation Phase with just four victories, four draws, suffering six defeats with 12 points in a very disappointing fourth position in the league table and missed promotion again.

In the Swiss Cup second round Basel were drawn with an away game against lower tier local club FC Pratteln. Basel were sent home suffering an embarrassing 4–0 defeat.
