The 1912–13 season was Manchester City F.C.'s twenty-second season of league football and third consecutive season back in the First Division of English football.

At the end of the previous season, manager Harry Newbould left the club following two poor bottom-half finishes, the club had no manager for the start of the season and so a committee of club officials guided the team for their first two matches. However, before their second game - a Manchester derby at Old Trafford - Ernest Mangnall had already been confirmed as taking over the managerial position at Hyde Road, and though he was still contracted to manage City's rivals for the game, when United lost by one goal to nil the press were eager to pick up on Mangnall's delight at the result.[1] To date, Mangnall remains the only man to have ever managed at both Manchester clubs.
