The Copa del Rey is an annual football cup competition for Spanish football teams. Its full name is Campeonato de España. The competition was founded in 1903, thus making it the oldest Spanish football competition. The current holder is Barcelona. The 2011–12 final was at Estadio Vicente Calderon between Athletic Bilbao 0-3 FC Barcelona. Typically, the winner of Copa del Rey goes to the UEFA Europa League; should one of the finalists have already qualified for European competition then the other finalist goes into the Europa League. FC Barcelona has won the cup on the most occasions, with 26 wins.
