This is a list of seasons played by Newcastle United Football Club in English football from 1888, when the club first competed in the FA Cup, to the most recent completed season. This list details the club's achievements in all major competitions, and the top scorers for each season.

The club was originally formed as Newcastle East End F.C., who became founding members of the Northern League in 1889.[1] East End were renamed Newcastle United F.C. in 1892 after acquiring Newcastle West End's ground, St James' Park and gained admission to the Football League a year later.[2] Their fifth season in Division Two saw Newcastle finish as runners-up, and despite failing to win promotion through a set of test matches, they did so after the league was extended to 18 teams.[3] Newcastle became Division One champions in the 1904–05 season and also reached the final of the FA Cup, where they were defeated 2–0 by Aston Villa.[3] Their first success in the competition came in 1910 when they beat Barnsley in the 1910 final, after it had gone to a replay.[3]

The club suffered relegation back to Division Two after the 1933–34 season, when they finished in 21st place.[3] They were still competing in the league by the time football was suspended because of the Second World War in 1939, and eventually regained their place in 1948.[3] Newcastle finished mostly in the bottom half of the table during their second spell in the top flight, before again facing relegation after the 1960–61 season.[3] After four seasons they returned to Division One as Division Two champions and qualified for European competition for the first time in the 1968–69 season by participating in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, which was eventually won by Newcastle; their most recent trophy to date.[3]

Relegation to Division Two occurred in 1978 and the club spent a six-year spell back in this division before returning to Division One in 1984, which lasted for five seasons before again facing relegation.[3] After avoiding relegation to Division Two, now the third tier of English football after its restructuring, in 1992, Newcastle gained promotion from Division One as champions to the FA Premier League a year later.[3] Their first season in the Premier League saw a finish in third place, meaning qualification to the UEFA Cup was secured, where they finished in the second round in their first season in the competition.[3] Newcastle came close to winning the Premier League in 1996 and 1997, after finishing as runner-up in the league consecutively.[3] Their record finish in the UEFA Cup came in the 2003–04 season, when they reached the semi-finals,[3] where they were beaten 2–0 on aggregate by Marseille.[4]

Seasons[edit]

Before the foundation of the Premier League (from the beginning of the 1992–93 season), Division 1 was the top division in the league. Subsequently, Division 1 became the second from top.
