Glasgow Lions won the Capital Bowl for the third time in 1990, and the first since 1987, when they previously entered, by defeating Edinburgh Phoenix in the Final, in what was a match-up between arguably the two best Scottish American Football teams at the time.

The Capital Bowl was a Scottish American Football Weekend tournament held annually at Meadowbank Stadium, in Edinburgh.
