The Ukrainian Cup 2004–05 was the 14th annual edition of Ukraine's football knockout competition, known as the Ukrainian Cup. The first game was conducted on August 4, 2004 with the game between Rava and Shakhtar Donetsk in Rava-Ruska, Lviv Region. However other sources with a reference to the Professional Football League of Ukraine state that the competition started on August 6, 2004 with game between Olkom and Dynamo Kyiv in Melitopol, Zaporizhia Region. Traditionally the final took place in late May of the next year where the same Shakhtar yielded to Dynamo Kyiv at the Olympic Stadium 0:1.
It was the last season of the format that did not involve any qualification and preliminary rounds. Every club started from the Round of 64 (1/32 of final) regardless of their position in the league's system structure. However the lower division clubs were given a home-field advantage.
