The title dinuclear complex, [Cu2Br2(C12H14N4S2)2], is located about an inversion center. The CuI ion is coordinated in a distorted tetra­hedral geometry by two bridging Br atoms in addition to an N and an S atom from the 2-[(4,6-dimethyl­pyrimidin-2-yl)disulfan­yl]-4,6-dimethyl­pyrimidine ligand. In the crystal, π–π stacking inter­actions are observed with a centroid–centroid distance of 3.590 (2) Å.
