The Full Members Cup was an English football cup competition held from 1985 to 1992. It was also known under its sponsored names of the Simod Cup from 1987 to 1989 and the Zenith Data Systems Cup from 1989 to 1992.

The competition was created after the Heysel Stadium disastermarker, when English clubs were banned from European competition, as an additional competition for clubs in the top two divisions (but not the top six from 1984–85 in the 1985–86 season as these played in the Super Cup). The name came from the fact that these clubs were Full Members of the Football League, with full voting rights; teams from the lower two divisions were Associate Members and were eligible for the Football League Trophy (then known as the Associate Members Cup). However, it was cancelled after seven seasons, when the Premier League arose from the old Football League First Division and reduced the Football League to three divisions. Another competition, the Super Cup for the teams who would have qualified for Europe, was introduced at the same time and lasted only one season.

Blackburn Rovers and Reading were the only Second Division teams to win the Cup (Reading would not be promoted to the top flight until 2006).
