Football Conference
Season2013–14
2014-2015

The 2013–14 Football Conference season is the tenth season with the Conference consisting of three divisions and the thirty-fourth season overall. The Conference covers the top two levels of Non-League football in England. The Conference Premier is the fifth highest level of the overall pyramid, whilst the Conference North and Conference South exist at the sixth level. The top team and the winner of the playoff of the Premier division will be promoted to Football League Two, while the bottom four are relegated to the North or South divisions. The champions of the North and South divisions will be promoted to the Premier division, alongside the play-off winners from each division. The bottom three in each of the North and South divisions are relegated to the premier divisions of the Northern Premier League, Isthmian League or Southern League.

Skrill will sponsor the Conference for this season and the divisions will now be known as the Skrill Premier, the Skrill North and the Skrill South. [1] Skrill terminated the sponsorship deal early, meaning a new title sponsor must be found for next season.
