The 1968–69 Taça de Portugal was the 29th edition of the Portuguese football knockout tournament, organized by the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF). The 1968–69 Taça de Portugal began on September 1968. The final was played on 22 June 1969 at the Estádio Nacional.[1]

Porto were the previous holders, having defeated Vitória de Setúbal 2–1 in the previous season's final.[2] Defending champions Porto were unable to regain the Taça de Portugal as they were defeated in the fourth round by eventual winners Benfica,[3] who went on to defeat Académica de Coimbra in the final and claim their thirteenth Taça de Portugal.[4][5]

First round[edit]

Teams from the Portuguese Second Division (II) and the Portuguese Third Division (III) entered at this stage. Due to the expansion of third tier teams being able to participate in the competition, two legged first round cup ties were scrapped. First round ties which ended in a draw, were replayed at a later date.[6][7]
