The Copa del Rey 1925 (known at that time as King Alfonso XIII's Cup) was the 25th edition of the Copa del Rey.

The competition started on March 1, 1925 and concluded on May 10, 1925 with the final, held at the Estadio Reina Victoria in Sevilla, in which FC Barcelona lifted the trophy for the 6th time ever with a 2–0 victory over Arenas Club.

Teams[edit]

Two more teams were invited to play the tournament that year. Besides the ten regional champions, the champion of Castile and León was also invited. The Levante Championship was split in two tournaments: The Valencian Championship and the Murcian Championship. So twelve teams (record at that time) were invited to the tournament.

Inscription of Real Murcia, champions of new Championship of Murcia, was not accepted.
