The 2013–14 Aviva Premiership was the 27th season of the top flight of the English domestic rugby union competition and the fourth to be sponsored by Aviva.

The reigning champions entering the season were Leicester Tigers, who claimed their 10th title after defeating Northampton Saints in the 2012–13 final. It was their 9th successive final appearance, but only their first win since 2009–10.[3] Newcastle Falcons made an immediate return to the top level, earning promotion by winning the 2012–13 RFU Championship play-offs against Bedford Blues.[4] London Welsh, having finished bottom of the 2012–13 table, were relegated to the RFU Championship.

On 31 May, Northampton Saints beat Saracens 24-20 to win the final at Twickenham.[5] [6][7][8]
