Maribor were the defending champions, having won their 11th league title the previous season. The season featured eight teams from the 2012–13 Slovenian PrvaLiga and two teams from the 2012–13 Slovenian Second League, Zavrč, who was promoted directly as the winners of the second division and Krka, which was promoted as a third placed team. The worst placed team during the 2012–13 season, Aluminij, was demoted to the Slovenian Second League, while Mura 05 was denied a license by the Slovenian Football Association, due to the club's poor financial state, and in the following weeks they subsequently filed for bankruptcy and folded.

ResultsEdit

Relegation play-offsEdit

Krka, who finished in ninth place in the league, were due to play (over two legs) Radomlje, who finished in second place in the 2013–14 Slovenian Second League. However, Dob, champions of the 2013–14 Slovenian Second League rejected their promotion. Therefore, Radomlje now claim automatic promotion to the 2014–15 Slovenian PrvaLiga and the relegation play-off is cancelled, ensuring Krka remains in the top division.[3]
