The 2014 Championship League was a professional non-ranking snooker tournament that was played from 6 January to 6 March 2014 at the Crondon Park Golf Club in Stock, England.[1]

Shaun Murphy made the 103rd official maximum break during his league stage match against Mark Davis in group two. This was Murphy's second official 147 break and the sixth in the 2013/2014 season.[2] It was also the first maximum break in the history of the tournament.[3] During the same day Neil Robertson defeated Joe Perry 3–0. During the match he made three century breaks, which took the number of his century breaks in the season to 63, breaking the record of most centuries compiled in a single season previously held by Judd Trump, who compiled 61 in the previous season.[4]

Judd Trump won his second Championship League title by defeating defending champion Martin Gould 3–1 in the final, and earned a place at the 2014 Champion of Champions.[5]
