The 2017–18 Taça de Portugal (also known as Taça de Portugal Placard for sponsorship reasons) was the 78th season of the Taça de Portugal, the premier knockout competition in Portuguese football.

The competition was contested by 153 clubs, including teams from the top-three tiers of the Portuguese football league system[lower-alpha 1] and representatives of the fourth-tier District leagues and cups. It began with the first-round matches in September 2017 and was concluded in May 2018, with the final at the Estádio Nacional.

Desportivo das Aves defeated Sporting CP 2–1 and won their first Portuguese Cup, succeeding Benfica as trophy holders, but did not qualify for the 2018–19 UEFA Europa League group stage since they failed to obtain a license for European competitions.[1]
