The Brimstone Cup is a soccer trophy awarded to the yearly winner of the rivalry between the Chicago Fire and FC Dallas Major League Soccer teams. The Cup is awarded by the Brimstone Cup Committee to the team with the most points in games played between the two. If the two teams have the same points against each other at the end of the year (including MLS regular season and playoff games and the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup) then the cup stays with the team holding it at the beginning of the year.

The cup was created during the 2001 season by the supporters' groups of both cities. Its name came from a reference of the names of the two teams at the time, as F.C. Dallas was then the Dallas Burn. The name is reflected with a quote from Virgil's Aeneid engraved on the base: "The more the kindled combat rises high'r, The more with fury burns the blazing fire."

The Brimstone Cup remained in Chicago for the second season in a row following the 3–2 Chicago road win at the Toyota Stadium on October 12, 2013.
