The 1922–23 season was Manchester City F.C.'s thirty-second season of league football, and ninth consecutive season in the Football League First Division, excluding the four years during the First World War in which no competitive football was played.

The season was the last in which Manchester City would play at their Hyde Road stadium, the ground having been declared too small for the growing ambitions of the club, the move having been hastened by a devastating fire burning down the Main Stand back in November 1920, the following season the club made the transition to their new ground, Maine Road.[1]
