The 2015 Taça de Portugal Final was the final match of the 2014–15 Taça de Portugal, the 75th season of the Taça de Portugal. It was played on 31 May 2015 at the Estádio Nacional in Oeiras, between Sporting CP and Braga. Sporting CP won 3–1 on penalties, following a 2–2 draw after extra-time, to claim their 16th title in the competition, and their first official trophy since the 2008 Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira. This was also the first time the Campeonato de Portugal/Taça de Portugal final was decided by a penalty shootout.

As the 2014–15 Taça de Portugal winners, Sporting CP earned the right to play in the 2015–16 UEFA Europa League group stage. However, since they qualified for the 2015–16 UEFA Champions League play-off round through their league placing, their cup winners place in the 2015–16 UEFA Europa League group stage is transferred to the highest-placed team in the league qualified for the UEFA Europa League (Braga), with the highest-placed team in the league that has not qualified to the European competitions (Belenenses) receiving a place in the third qualifying round.[2]

Also, as cup winners, Sporting CP played against Benfica, the league winners, in the 2015 Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira, winning 1-0.
