Stjarnan F.C. is an Icelandic sports club specialising in football, located in Garðabær, which currently plays for the season 2013 in the Úrvalsdeild. They won the promotion from the 1. deild karla in 2008.

The club gained worldwide fame when their elaborate goal celebrations, including a highly choreographed depiction of landing a fish, diving, a human toilet, a human bicycle, and an imitation of a Rambo shooting spree, were published widely across the Internet and football television shows.[1] The Spanish mobile network Movistar even made a YouTube video about Stjarnan.

The women's team won the Icelandic championship in 2011 and 2013.
