The 2013–14 Svenska Cupen was the 58th season of Svenska Cupen and the second season with the current format. The winners of the competition earned a place in the second qualifying round of the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League. If they had already qualified for European competition, the qualification spot would have gone to another team, determined by a number of factors.

A total of 96 clubs entered the competition.[2][3] The first round commenced on 21 May 2013 and the final was played on 18 May 2014 at Friends Arena in Solna.[4][5] IFK Göteborg were the defending champions, having beaten Djurgårdens IF 3–1 on penalties after the match had finished 1–1 after extra time in last season's final. They were knocked out by Superettan newcomers IK Sirius in the quarter-finals.

IF Elfsborg won their third Svenska Cupen title on 18 May 2014 after defeating Helsingborgs IF 1–0.

European competition qualification[edit]

The winners of the 2013–14 Svenska Cupen will earn a place in the second qualifying round of the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League. The qualification spot will be awarded to the runner-up in the competition if the winner is already qualified to the 2014–15 UEFA Champions League by winning the 2013 Allsvenskan. In this case the runner-up will go into the Europa League in the first qualifying round and the third placed team in Allsvenskan will go into the second qualifying round instead of the first qualifying round. If the winner or runner-up (in the previous mentioned situation) is already qualified for the first qualifying round of the Europa League by finishing as the third placed team in Allsvenskan, they will go into the second qualifying round and the fourth placed team in Allsvenskan will be awarded a qualifying spot for the first qualifying round.[3]
