The 2019–20 season was Birmingham City Football Club's 117th season in the English football league system and ninth consecutive season in the second-tier Championship.[4] The team finished 20th in the Championship, having avoided relegation on the final day of the season despite losing their own match, after other results went in their favour and Wigan Athletic suffered a 12-point deduction for entering administration. As with all English Football League clubs, the first team also competed in the FA Cup and EFL Cup. They reached the fifth round of the FA Cup, in which they lost 1–0 away to Premier League club Leicester City, and were eliminated in the first round of the EFL Cup, a match in which a inexperienced Birmingham team lost 3–0 away to Portsmouth of League One.

On 13 March 2020, as an initial response to the coronavirus pandemic, professional football in England was suspended until 3 April at the earliest.[5] The Championship resumed behind closed doors on 20 June.

Pep Clotet confirmed on 8 June that he would leave the club at the end of the season, but after a series of poor results, he left by mutual consent on 8 July with four matches of the season remaining.

The season covered the period from 1 July 2019 to the end of the 2019–20 Championship season.
