The 2013 Categoría Primera A season (officially known as the 2013 Liga Postobón season for sponsorship reasons) is the 66th season of Colombia's top-flight football league. Millonarios come in as the defending champions having won the title in the 2012 season.

Format[edit]

The format for both the Apertura and Finalización will have an identical format. Each championship will be divided into three stages. The First Stage will be contested on a home-and-away basis, with each team playing the other teams once and playing a regional rival once more. The top eight teams after eighteen rounds will advance to a semifinal round, of two groups of four playing oncemore on a home-and-away basis. The winner of each semifinal group will advance to the final of the tournament and will be played one game as home and another game away. The winner of the final will be declared the tournament champion and will participate in the 2014 Copa Libertadores.
