Copa de Honor Municipalidad de Buenos Aires is a defunct official Argentine domestic cup competition. It was contested fourteen times between 1905 and 1920 and had a short revival of only one edition, in 1936.[1]

This cup was played by teams from Greater Buenos Aires and Rosario (which were part of Asociación Rosarina de Football). The champion of this tournament qualified to play the Copa de Honor Cousenier versus a representative team of the Asociación Uruguaya de Fútbol.[2]
