The 1905-06 season marked Chelsea's debut in the Football League, in which they competed in the Second Division. The club had been founded earlier in 1905 on 10 March at The Rising Sun pub, opposite the present-day Stamford Gate entrance to the ground on Fulham Road. Chelsea were denied entry to the Southern League following objections from Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur, so instead applied for admission to the Football League. Their candidacy was endorsed at the Football League AGM on 29 May 1905.

The club finished third in the league, missing out on promotion to the First Division at the first attempt by one place, though they were nine points off the promotion places at the end of the season following a disappointing end to the campaign. Frank Pearson and Jimmy Windridge were the team's top scorers, with eighteen goals apiece.

*Chelsea were required to play their League match at home to Burnley on the same day as their FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round trip to Crystal Palace. The first team beat Burnley in the League but the reserves (who competed in the South Eastern League) were hammered 7-1 at Crystal Palace (who were to win the Second Division of the Southern League in 1905/06). That result is still the record defeat by a League side against a non-league side in the FA Cup.
