{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Use dmy dates |date=__DATE__ |$B= }} The 1890–1891 Football Alliance was the second season of the Football Alliance, an association football league which was set up in England as a rival to The Football League, which had begun in the 1888–89 season.

Stoke joined the Alliance in this season after dropping out of the Football League at the end of the previous season and were crowned champions after the penultimate round of fixtures on 4 April. Last season's champions The Wednesday finished bottom after losing thirteen games in a dreadful season. Even a 4–2 win (3–0 at half time) at home to runners up Sunderland Albion on the last day of the season failed to lift Wednesday off the foot of the table.<ref name=owl>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>

At the end of the season Stoke were elected back to the Football League along with 6th placed Darwen, whilst Sunderland Albion left in order to join the Northern League.<ref name=owl/>
