Sport Clube Lusitânia or S.C. Lusitânia is a professional sports club located in Angra do Heroísmo, Azores, Portugal.


S.C. Lusitânia soccer team is in the Portuguese Second Division. Their highest achievement is reaching the semifinals of the Taça de Portugal in 1964. They had defeated Ferroviário Lourenço Marques in the quarterfinals, the highest a Portuguese colony club ever reached in the Portuguese Cup (and only because the dictatorship of António de Oliveira Salazar allowed them to play as a means of demonstrating that Portugal's African possessions were provinces and not colonies).
