The Copa del Rey 1907 was the 5th edition of the Copa del Rey. The competition started on March 24, 1907 and concluded on March 30, 1907 with the Final Playoff, in which Madrid FC lifted the trophy for the third time in a row.


The tournament reached a new record of participants. Eleven teams registered to participate: FC Barcelona, Moderno of Guadalajara, Recreativo de Huelva, San Sebastián Recreation Club, Athletic de Madrid, Excelsior of Madrid, Hispania of Madrid, Madrid FC, Club Bizcaya (merger of Athletic de Bilbao and Unión Atlética Vizcaína), Hamilton FC of Salamanca and Vigo FC. Moreover, the Catalan regional champion, X Sporting Club, was invited but again refused to participate for internal and financial reasons.

At the last minute, FC Barcelona and San Sebastian RC did not attend the event, while the organization dismissed Moderno Guadalajara. The four teams of Madrid played preliminary rounds to choose one single representative of Madrid region. Madrid FC won the preliminary rounds and qualified.

So, finally, five teams took part in the tournament:
