The 2013–14 Liga II is the 74th season of the Liga II, the second tier of the Romanian football league system. The season began on 7 September.[1]

The 25 teams were divided in two series (with 13, respectively 12 teams). The regular season will be played in a round-robin tournament. After that, the 13th team from Seria I will be automatically relegated. The first six teams from each series will play a play-off for promotion to Liga I. The teams placed 6th to 12th will play in a Relegation play-out. The first two teams in each series will promote at the end of the season to the Liga I, and the teams placed below the 10th place will relegate to the Liga III.[2]

Teams[edit]

At the end of 2012-13 season, Botoșani, Săgeata Năvodari from Seria I and Corona Brașov, ACS Poli Timișoara promoted to Liga I. Four teams were relegated to Liga III: Chindia Târgoviște, Dinamo II (Seria I), FCMU Baia Mare and Unirea Alba Iulia.

The winners of the six 2012–13 Liga III series were promoted to Liga II: SC Bacău, Gloria Buzău, ACS Berceni, Minerul Motru, Olimpia Satu Mare and Unirea Tărlungeni.

After the end of the last season, FC Delta Tulcea, CS Otopeni and FC Argeș were dissolved. Luceafărul Oradea withdrew from Liga II and enrolled to Liga IV.

Craiova teams[edit]

Following a legal decision, Universitatea Craiova was re-enrolled by the Romanian Football Federation to the second series of Liga II. A second place was offered to the CSU Craiova, the team supported by the local authorities.[3]

Renamed teams[edit]

CS Buftea was moved to Clinceni and renamed FC Clinceni, while Damila Măciuca was moved to Reșita, becoming Metalul Reșița. FCM Târgu Mureș was renamed ASA Târgu Mureș.

Excluded teams[edit]

Sportul Studențesc was excluded for the championship because the team wasn't programmed in the first four rounds due to a debt to Rapid CFR Suceava.[4]
