After a disappointing 2012 season the Demons were handed a seemingly easy opening round fixture against fellow strugglers Port Adelaide on the MCG. Port won easily and the club was plunged into crisis, following up the next week with their largest ever loss at their home ground.

The Demons registered their first win for the year against Greater Western Sydney in Round 4 on the back of the club's highest scoring quarter in history, but they continued to disappoint - and lost their first match against a recent expansion team against Gold Coast in Round 7.

After the dismissal of Chief Executive Officer Cameron Schwab following the Round 2 defeat, Melbourne went to the AFL for assistance and former Essendon CEO Peter Jackson was signed to the position until the end of 2014. With the club in crisis both on and off-field, and former Hawthorn President and Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett suggesting he would mount a challenge, President Don McLardy resigned on Friday 14 June.

That day the board made the long expected move on coach Mark Neeld 18 months into his contract, announcing his dismissal on the morning of Monday 17 June. Former Adelaide coach Neil Craig replaced him until the end of the season. Further casualties included resigned board members Stuart Grimshaw, Guy Jalland, Karen Hayes and List Manager Tim Harrington who was made redundant.

Under caretaker coach Neil Craig the Demons recovered briefly before sinking back into their old ways. He won just won game in his 11 matches in charge. The club's win tally was their worst since 1981 and their percentage was the worst since 1906.

Former West Coast player Glen Bartlett was named Club President on 16 August, despite a campaign by ex-board member Alan Stockdale to take on the job.

The first Melbourne FC Women team played as a curtain raiser to the Round 14 match against Western Bulldogs. Players from each side were chosen in a draft and Jack Grimes served as an assistant coach. Melbourne won on a night where the men's side earned their only victory of the season over a non-expansion club.

Aaron Davey, Joel Macdonald and David Rodan retired. Tom Couch, Troy Davis, Tom Gillies, James Sellar and Josh Tynan were delisted.
