2013–14 Armenian First League

The Armenian First League is currently the second level football competition in Armenia after the Armenian Premier League. The competition exists mostly out of reserve teams of several Premier League clubs, however other teams also participate. The reserve teams are not eligible for promotion to the highest level, resulting in situations where a club promotes even when they finish the season in a mid-table position. The league currently consists of ten teams, with only two capable of promotion for the 2013-14 Armenian Premier League season.
