The 2013–14 CERH European League was the 49th season of Europe's premier club roller hockey competition organised by CERH, and the 17th season since it was renamed from Champions League to European League. Sixteen teams from six national associations qualified for the competition as a result of their domestic league placing in the previous season. Following a group stage and a knockout round, the four best teams contested a final four tournament,[1] which took place at the Palau Blaugrana in Barcelona, on 3 and 4 May 2014.

The final match was played between Barcelona and Porto, for the sixth time in the competition's history, after they defeated the defending champions Benfica and the 2012–13 CERS Cup winners Vendrell in the semi-finals, respectively. Barcelona beat Porto 3–1 and won their twentieth title, establishing a new record. The Portuguese team lost their second consecutive final and finished the competition as runners-up for a record tenth time.

Barcelona will play against Noia, the winners of the 2013–14 CERS Cup, for the 2014 CERH Continental Cup, and against the winners of the 2014 South American Club Championship for the 2014 FIRS Intercontinental Cup.
