The 1993–94 Football League season was Birmingham City Football Club's 91st in the Football League. They finished in 22nd position in the 24-team Division One, so were relegated to the third tier for 1994–95. They entered the 1993–94 FA Cup at the third-round stage, and lost their opening match to non-League club Kidderminster Harriers, and entered the League Cup in the first round, losing in the second to fellow Birmingham-based club Aston Villa. They were eliminated in the preliminary group of the Anglo-Italian Cup.[1]

After a poor start to the season, manager Terry Cooper resigned, believing that new owner David Sullivan wanted to bring in his own man.[2] He was replaced by Southend United manager Barry Fry, at the cost of a record Football League fine of £130,000 after being found guilty of poaching Fry and his staff.[3] At the end of the season, the Kop and Tilton Road terraces of the St Andrew's ground were demolished, to be re-opened the following season as all-seater stands.

The club's top scorer in league matches was Andy Saville with ten goals; Saville and Paul Peschisolido scored ten in all competitions.
