History

The Brimstone Cup is FC Dallas’ oldest rivalry series. The derby was created by supporters of Dallas and the Chicago Fire, and the name was chosen in homage to Dallas' original team name of the Burn and the Fire. What truly makes the Brimstone Cup special is that it was created by the Supporters themselves, and hence retains special significance to the most passionate and loyal of FC Dallas fans.
