The 2014 Campeonato Ecuatoriano de Fútbol de la Serie A (officially known as the Copa Pilsener Serie A for sponsorship reasons) was the 56th season of the Serie A, Ecuador's premier football league.

Emelec successfully defended their title for their 12th overall.

Format[edit]

The format for the season was played as in 2013 with the exception that the runner-up would not qualify to the Copa Sudamericana.[1]

Teams[edit]

Twelve teams competed in the 2014 Serie A season, ten of which remained from the previous season. Deportivo Quevedo and Macará were relegated to the Serie B after accumulating the least amount of points in the 2013 season aggregate table. They were replaced by Olmedo and Mushuc Runa, the 2013 Serie B winner and runner-up, respectively. Olmedo was making a return to the Serie A after a one-year absence. Mushuc Runa were making their first appearance in the top-flight.
