(C) Champion; (O) Play-off winner; (P) Promoted.
Notes:
  1. ^ Leek Town were deducted 3 points for fielding an ineligible player (vs Eastwood Town), but as Eastwood Town's record has been expunged this has no effect on their points total in the table.
  2. ^ The Northern Premier League confirmed that Eastwood Town had resigned from competition on 9 March 2014 and as a result their playing record (PL:27, W:2, D:5, L:20) was expunged.[9]

The 2013–14 Northern Premier League Challenge Cup is the 44th season of the Northern Premier League Challenge Cup, the main cup competition in the Northern Premier League. It will be sponsored by Doodson Sport for a third consecutive season. 68 clubs from England will enter the competition, beginning with the Preliminary Round on 3 September.[10]

The defending champions are North Ferriby United, who beat Curzon Ashton on penalties after a 1–1 result in regulation and extra time in the 2013 Final.[11][12] North Ferriby United will be unable to defend their title as they were promoted to the Conference North after being the 2012–13 NPL Premier Division champions.

Changes from previous cups include the elimination of a round by having the Premier Division teams enter in the First Round instead of the Third Round as in previous years and, instead of going into extra time, all ties in the preliminary through semi-final rounds will end after 90 minutes and conclude with penalties.[10][13][14][15][16]
