This is a list of seasons played by Dover Athletic F.C. in English football, from the club's formation to the most recent completed season. It details the club's achievements in all major and some minor competitions, and the top scorers for each season where known.

Dover Athletic F.C. was formed in 1983 after the dissolution of the town's previous club, Dover F.C., whose place in the Southern League was taken by the new club. In the 1989–90 season Dover Athletic won the Southern League championship, but failed to gain promotion to the Football Conference due to ground grading issues. Three seasons later the team won this title again and this time gained promotion to the Conference, where they spent nine seasons before being relegated.

The club's best performance in the FA Cup was an appearance in the first round proper in the 2002–03 season, while the best performance registered in the FA Trophy, the national competition for higher-level non-league clubs, was a run to the semi-finals in the 1997–98 season.
