Brännbollscupen is an annual competition in brännboll in Umeå, Sweden, organised by IKSU. Brännboll is a Scandinavian game similar to baseball.[1]

Brännbollscupen was first arranged in 1974 with 44 participating teams. Throughout the years the tournament has grown to over 1000 participating teams. Since 1997, the contest has World Cup status.[1]

Brännbollscupen is always played the last weekend of May. When the sun sets and it is too dark to play brännboll, the festival Brännbollsyran takes place.
