TeamsEdit

This season's Kuwaiti Premier League featured all 14 teams of the football pyramid, combining both the Premier League and Division One together, a structure last used in the 2005–06 Kuwaiti Premier League season. Fourteen teams played each other twice to determine the league champions.

Therefore, Kazma, who came bottom in the 2012–13 campaign avoided relegation. The end-of-season playoff between Al Salmiya and Al Shabab in which Al Salmiya won, thus didn't matter.

Teams joining the top flight are Khaitan (back after relegation in 2005–06), Al Fahaheel (back after relegation in 2006–07), Al Sahel (back after relegation in 2010–11), Al Shabab (back after relegation in 2011–12), Al Yarmouk (back after relegation in 2005–06), and Al Tadamun (back after relegation in 2009–10).
