The 2014–15 season was Bristol City's 117th season as a professional football club and their second consecutive season in the 3rd Division of the Football League since their relegation from the Championship.

The club enjoyed a memorable season of success, earning promotion while winning a double of the Football League Trophy, and in doing so becoming the first club to win the trophy three times, and the League One title, the club's first league title in 60 years.[1]
