Nymark Idrettslag is a Norwegian sports club from Årstad, Bergen. It has sections for association football, cycling and athletics.

It was founded on 21 April 1921, and was a member of Arbeidernes Idrettsforbund until that association ceased to exist.[1] The football fields Nymarksbanene were established near Brann stadion in the 1960s, and are now the club's home fields.[2]

The women's football team won the Norwegian First Division Championship in 1985,[1] but was relegated already in 1986,[3] and now plays in the Second Division (third tier). The men's football team currently plays in the Fourth Division (fifth tier). Their team colors are black and white.
