The 2014 Oakland Athletics season was the 46th for the franchise at O.co Coliseum, as well as the 114th in club history.

The team was the first in Oakland history to reach the postseason with fewer than 90 regular season wins. They lost to the Kansas City Royals in 12 innings in the Wild Card Game.
