Format and Results[edit]

For the eleventh consecutive season, the tournament was played in a double round-robin system. In a fashion similar to its second title in 2003, Cruzeiro led the rankings for most of the tournament, declared champion in the fifth to last round. The bottom four teams, Fluminense, Vasco, Ponte Preta and Nautico were relegated to play in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B in the 2014 season.

The tournament had a one-month interruption between June 9 and July 6 due to the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, which took place in Brazil.

Although Portuguesa finished the championship just above the relegation positions, it was punished by the Superior Court of Sport Justice for irregularly calling in a player during a match against Grêmio - Héverton, who was suspended for a red card received at his previous Copa do Brasil match.[2] With the punishment, the team lost four points - three for the irregular usage of a player and a fourth one which the team won due to the game resulting in a tie - and ended up being relegated.[2] This way, Fluminense FC initially managed to finish the championship above the relegation positions and was spared from having to compete in the next year's second division for the third time on the last 2 decades.[2] However, following an appeal in court by Daniel Neves, a ruling by Judge Marcello do Amaral Perino on 10 January 2014 reinstated the four points and they went down. This was because the Confederation failed to give sufficient notice that the player's suspension had been extended by one week. The ruling gave ten days for CBF to appeal.[3][4]

International qualification[edit]

The Série A served as a qualifier to CONMEBOL's 2014 Copa Libertadores. Cruzeiro and Gremio qualified to the Second Stage of the competition, while Atletico Paranaense qualified to the First Stage. Botafogo qualified to the First Stage as well since Ponte Preta lost the 2013 Copa Sudamericana Finals.
