The 2013–14 season was Swansea City's 94th season in the English football league system, and their third consecutive season in the Premier League.

During pre-season Swansea recruited heavily, breaking the clubs' transfer record fee with the purchase of Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony from Vitesse for £12 million.[1] They also acquired Jonjo Shelvey from Liverpool for £5 million.[2] Other significant signings included Alejandro Pozuelo[3] and José Cañas, who both signed from Real Betis,[4] and Spanish defender Jordi Amat from Espanyol for £2.5 million,[5] Only two players left the club during the summer. Kemy Agustien moved to Brighton & Hove Albion on a free transfer on 1 August 2013,[6] and Luke Moore was released by the club on 23 August 2013.[7]

In the Premier League, Swansea lost to defending champions Manchester United 4–1 at the Liberty Stadium in their first game of the season.[8] They picked up their first win of the league campaign on 2 September in a 2–0 away win against West Bromwich Albion.[9] On 4 February 2014 manager Michael Laudrup was sacked by chairman Huw Jenkins following a 2–0 defeat to West Ham United. It was Swansea's sixth defeat in eight league games and left Swansea two points above the relegation zone. Garry Monk was appointed as the interim player-manager.[10] Monk was appointed as the permanent manager of Swansea City on 7 May 2014, signing a 3-year contract.[11] In the final game of the season Swansea beat Sunderland 3–1 at the Stadium of Light, ensuring they finished with 42 points in 12th place in the league table.[12]

Swansea City competed in two domestic cups, the FA Cup, and the Football League Cup. Swansea entered the League Cup in the third round as the defending champions, but were knocked out of the competition in their opening match to Birmingham City, 3–1.[13] In the FA Cup, Swansea advanced to the fifth round, but lost 3–1 to Everton at Goodison Park.[14]

Swansea competed in the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League, their first European competition since the 1991–92 European Cup Winners' Cup. They were eliminated in the Round of 32 by Napoli, having drawn the home game 0–0 and losing the away game 3–1.[15]
