The Copa del Rey 1911 was the 10th staging of the Copa del Rey.

The competition started on April 9, 1911, and concluded on April 15, 1911, with the Final, held at the Josaleta Stadium in Getxo, in which Athletic Bilbao lifted the trophy for the 5th time ever with a 3–1 victory over CD Español. This Tournament should have been 13 teams, but 3 teams withdrew, and another 3 teams withdrew during the competition.

Controversies

RC Deportivo de la Coruña and Academia de Ingenieros withdrew the competition before it started. They were against fielding foreign players in the teams. During the tournament, there were more protests and withdrew threats of some teams. After the first round match between Athletic Bilbao and Fortuna Vigo, Real Sociedad contested the match, claiming illegal lineup of two English players in Athletic Bilbao. The Football Federation rejected the claim and Real Sociedad withdrew immediately. The rest of teams supported Real Sociedad and threatened to withdrew. Finally, Athletic decided not to lineup those players in their matches, but refused to replay the match against Fortuna Vigo.
