UAAP Season 76 is the 2013–2014 athletic year of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines. It is hosted by Adamson University with Fr. Maximino D. Rendon, C.M. as President. Eight universities will be competing in fifteen sports with poomsae, a form in the sport of taekwondo now recognized as a regular sport and included in the general championship tally. Some of these sports are aired live or on a delayed telecast by ABS-CBN Channel 2 and Studio 23. All the men's basketball games and the women's volleyball games are aired live by ABS-CBN Sports, the former for the fourteenth consecutive year and the latter since Season 69. Starting this season, ABS-CBN Sports will air on Friday afternoons: one men's volleyball game (1-3 pm, on a delayed basis) and one live men's football game (3-5 pm). On January 18, 2014, the UAAP telecast transferred to ABS-CBN Sports+Action starting with women`s volleyball after Studio 23 ceased its broadcast in January 17, 2014.
Season 76 opened on Saturday, June 29, 2013 at 12:30 P.M. at the Mall of Asia Arena with an elaborate and colorful opening ceremony patterned after the hit book "The Hunger Games". Its theme is "Greatness never ends".
Dancers representing the eight universities dressed up according to their school’s identity, but taking a page from the book from which the opening ceremony was themed. The schools’ dancers wore hats, capes matching their university colors and giving off a tribal look, as they came out like the characters from the Districts. The others were dressed in over-the-top outfits, looking like the people from the Capitol — as in the movie. Adamson, this year’s host of the UAAP, had the most elaborate introduction in the opening as they showcased huge birds with feathers of white and blue.
The opening ceremony was followed by two men's basketball games, University of the East versus Far Eastern University and De La Salle University against University of Santo Tomas.
The June start, compared to the usual July opening of past seasons, was due to the decision of the UAAP to suspend its basketball games while the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship was running from August 1-11, 2013. This gave way to the country's hosting of the continental caging as requested by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas. 
The UAAP Season 76 volleyball tournament began on December 1, 2013 at the Araneta Coliseum. The tournament host of the seniors' division is Adamson University while University of the East is tournament host for the juniors' division.
The UAAP uses the number of wins as the primary criterion for ranking teams; Adamson and La Salle, which were tied with 7 wins in the men's tournament, had a playoff to determine the #4 seed, despite La Salle having more points (23) than Adamson (21); the same happened for Adamson (19 points) and FEU (17 points), which were tied for 4th in the women's tournament with 6 wins.
