The 2013–14 season was the 131st season in Bristol Rovers' history and their 87th in the Football League. For the third season in a row, Rovers competed in the basement division of the Football League, League Two, having finished 14th in the 2012–13 season.

During the season, Rovers played their first competitive fixture against Newport County since their reformation and their first against Portsmouth in 20 years. They also competed in the first competitive Bristol derby since 2007, losing to Bristol City in the first round of the Football League Trophy at Ashton Gate Stadium.

The season ultimately finished in disappointment as Rovers were relegated out of the Football League for the first time since their admission in 1920. Despite Rovers only ever occupying one of the two relegation places following the final game of the season, the threat of relegation surrounded the club for the entire season.
