The 1903 Copa del Rey Final was the first final of the Copa del Rey, the Spanish football cup competition. The match took place on 8 April 1903 at the Hipódromo, Madrid. The match was contested by Athletic Bilbao and Madrid CF.

Athletic Bilbao lifted the trophy for the first time with a 3–2 victory over Madrid CF. Athletic Bilbao claims this trophy to be their second in a row, although the Royal Spanish Football Federation don't recognize the previous tournament as official.

This match has been identified as a catalyst for the establishment a few weeks later of what would eventually become Club Atlético de Madrid, after some Madrid-based Basque students among the spectators were inspired by the comeback victory by Athletic Bilbao and decided to form a local branch of the club.[1]
