Blackpool Football Club is a professional association football club based in the seaside town of Blackpool, Lancashire, England. For the 2016–17 season, they are competing in League Two, the fourth tier of English football. Founded in 1887, Blackpool's home ground has been Bloomfield Road since 1901. Their main nickname is the Seasiders, but they are also called the 'Pool and the Tangerines, the latter in reference to the colour of their home kit, which is often referred to as orange.

The 1913-14 season was Blackpool F.C.'s 17th season (14th consecutive) in the Football League. They competed in the twenty-team Division Two, then the second tier of English football, finishing sixteenth.

Joe Lane was the club's top scorer, with eleven goals.

When Levy Thorpe left the club in late October, he was on a streak of playing in 98 consecutive games for the club.
