The 2013–14 Football League Championship (referred to as the Sky Bet Championship for sponsorship reasons) was the tenth season of the Football League Championship under its current title, the twenty-first season under its current league division format and marked the 125th anniversary of the Football League's inaugural season. The season started on 3 August 2013 and finished on 3 May 2014, with all matches on the final day kicking off simultaneously.[4]

Changes from last season[edit]

Team changes[edit]

The following teams have changed division since the 2012–13 season.[5]

Rule changes[edit]

Changes to the Championship's financial fair play system allow clubs:[6]

  • Acceptable losses of £3 million during the 2013–14 season (down from £4 million during the 2012–13 season)
  • Acceptable shareholder equity investment of £5 million during the 2013–14 season (down from £6 million during the 2012–13 season).
  • Sanctions for exceeding the allowances take effect from the set of accounts relating to the 2013–14 season which are due to be submitted on 1 December 2014.

Teams[edit]

Of the 24 participating teams, eighteen remain following the 2012–13 Football League Championship. They are joined by three teams promoted from the 2012–13 Football League One and three relegated from the 2012–13 Premier League.

On 20 April 2013, Bournemouth were promoted to the Championship after Brentford's 1–1 draw with Hartlepool. A week later, Doncaster were promoted as champions of League One after scoring a late goal against Brentford. This pushed Bournemouth down to second place. On 19 May, Yeovil Town won promotion by beating Brentford in the 2013 Football League One play-off Final.

On 28 April 2013, Queens Park Rangers and Reading were both relegated from the Premier League after a goalless draw against each other. On 14 May, Wigan Athletic were relegated from the Premier League after a 4–1 defeat at Arsenal.
