The 2013 FA WSL was the third season of the FA WSL, the top-level women's football league of England. The season began on 14 April and ended on 29 September.
Arsenal were the defending champions, having won their ninth consecutive English title last season. The top two teams qualified for the 2014–15 UEFA Women's Champions League.
The season was the last before the creation of a second division of the WSL. All teams had to reapply for a place in WSL 1 next season. Doncaster Belles will be the only current team not to be granted a place, thus playing WSL 2 next season. Manchester City will take their place in the top flight next season. Lincoln Ladies will retain their place in WSL 1 but reconstitute as Notts County Ladies for 2014.
