This is a complete list of seasons competed by the Hamilton (Flying) Wildcats, a Canadian football team that competed in the Ontario Rugby Football Union and Interprovincial Rugby Football Union. The Hamilton Wildcats Football Club was formed to play in the ORFU in 1941 to fill the void left by the Hamilton Tigers, who folded due to a large number of players joining the army.

After World War II, the Hamilton Tigers resumed playing in the IRFU, simultaneously competing for the Grey Cup with the Wildcats. In 1950, the two clubs merged under the moniker Hamilton Tiger-Cats after it became apparent that both teams would not be able to compete financially in the same market.

During their brief history, the Wildcats won one Grey Cup championship.
