† Appearances (Goals).

Brian Robert McBride (born June 19, 1972) is an American soccer player who plays for Chicago Fire in Major League Soccer (MLS). He has played much of his career in Europe, notably for Fulham in the English Premier League. During his time in London, McBride became a fan-favorite as well as team captain; after leaving the club, Fulham re-named the sports bar at Craven Cottage McBride's in his honor.

Born in Arlington Heights, Illinois, McBride played varsity soccer at Buffalo Grove High School, under coach John Erfort, where he led the Bison to the Illinois state championship in 1988, his junior year. In his four years in high school, he scored 80 goals, 33 as a senior. McBride was also named an All-American by Parade Magazine. Later, as a professional, he signed a contract with Nike with the condition that the boys' varsity soccer team receive new uniforms every two years.
