The 2013–14 US Open Arena Soccer Championship is the sixth edition of an open knockout style tournament for arena/indoor soccer. In this edition, teams from the Professional Arena Soccer League, Premier Arena Soccer League, and other independent indoor soccer teams are participating in the single elimination tournament.

Unlike a traditional tournament where many teams will gather at a single site to play a series of matches in a short period of time, the US Open Arena Soccer Championship incorporates a series of qualifying tournaments, special matches, and the regular season meetings of teams in the Professional Arena Soccer League over a series of months to fill out then complete the tournament bracket. This non-linear format is how, for example, the Cleveland Freeze advanced to the Semi-finals before the Tulsa Revolution played its weather-delayed Round of 32 match.

After a three-year run by the San Diego Sockers, the 2012–13 Open Cup was won by the Detroit Waza.[1] This year, Detroit was knocked out in its first Open Cup match by the Harrisburg Heat.
