The 1990–91 season of the European Cup Winners' Cup was won by Manchester United against Barcelona. The victory for United was made significant as it was the season English clubs returned to European football, after completing a five-year ban as a result of the Heysel Stadium disaster.


A total of 33 teams participated in the competition. Yugoslav Cup winners Red Star Belgrade won the double, and cup runners-up Hajduk Split were disqualified, so no representative of Yugoslavia participated.

    East Germany (GDR): All matches of PSV Schwerin, representing the DFV of East Germany as runners-up of the 1989–90 FDGB-Pokal (as Dynamo Dresden won the double and qualified for the European Cup), on or after German reunification of 3 October show the flag of the reunited nation of Germany. However, those matches and their records were still counted for East Germany, and not for Germany, under UEFA regulations.
