Iraq FA Cup is the primary knockout cup competition in Iraqi football, organised by and named after the Iraq Football Association.

The tournament was first held in its current format in the 1975–76 season. Entry is open to teams from the Iraqi Premier League and the Iraq Division One. It allows teams from the lower divisions to have a chance of eliminating the Premier League teams or even to win the cup, although no lower division team has been able to get past the semifinals. The winners of the competition are awarded a place in the Al-Muthabara Cup against the league champions at the start of the next season, as well as a place in the next season's AFC Cup and Gulf Cup Winners' Cup tournaments.

Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya are the current holders of the cup, having beaten Al-Zawra'a 2–0 in the 2016 final to win the cup for the fourth time. Al-Zawra'a have the record for most FA Cup wins in their history with a total of 14.
