The 2013–14 Football League Cup, known as the Capital One Cup for sponsorship reasons, was the 54th season of the Football League Cup, a knock-out competition for the top 92 football clubs in England and Wales. Swansea City were the defending champions, but were eliminated by Birmingham City in the 3rd round. The winners of the Football League Cup will earn the right to play in the third qualifying round of the 2014–15 Europa League unless they have already qualified to play in Europe due to their league position or their performance in the FA Cup.

Numbers within brackets represent a team's league level in the 2013–14 season, level 1 being the Premier League, level 2 the Championship, and so on.

On 16 December 2013, it was announced that goal-line technology will be used in three of the four quarter-finals and any subsequent matches in the Capital One Cup. The system was used the very next day, in the SunderlandChelsea quarter-final, in which an own-goal from Lee Cattermole was allowed.

The cup was won by Manchester City who defeated Sunderland 3–1 in the final. This was their first League Cup trophy since 1976 and their third win overall.

First round

The draw for the first round took place on 17 June 2013 at 09:30 BST. Ties were played during the week commencing 5 August 2013.
