Burnaby Sport Club is a professional football club playing in the Kelssek Football League, based in the city of Burnaby. It has won the most national championships of any club in Kelssek, with 14 titles. It was also the first Kelssek club to achieve a double by winning the 65th KFL Championship and 14th Patriotes Cup in the same season.

It plays its home matches at Stadium Konoha in downtown Burnaby, which is shared with the Burnaby Lions rugby club and owned by the Burnaby municipal government. The club is also known for having the oldest and most well-established academy system in Kelssek football, and benefits from being able to recruit from the region in Kelssek where football is the most popular.

During the UICA centennial, Burnaby SC was named Kelssek's "club of the century" as the most successful team from Kelssek in international club competitions to that date. This honour gives the club its nickname, the Centurions. Burnaby was the first and only Kelssek team to reach the Globe Cup group stage; only after the demise of UICA did other Kelssek clubs manage to match this achievement.

Burnaby has two main rivalries. It plays a local derby against Coquitlam United, known as the Battle of Burnaby. Burnaby's other rivalry is variously known as the East vs. West or Lake vs. Coast rivalry against Kirkenes FC, which is often characterized as a contest between Burnaby's free-spirited mountain culture against the old Eastern eastern establishment.

Although primarily known for its football team, Burnaby SC is a multi-sport club which also has amateur rugby union, water polo, handball, basketball, and volleyball teams.
