ASIL Lysi (Greek: ΑΣΙΛ Λύσης) is a Cypriot football club which was established in the town of Lysi, Famagusta.

The club was founded in Lysi, Famagusta on June 26, 1932. Club founders were Ch. Fokaides, Ch. Panayides, K. Rousi and N. Petrou. The choice for the club's name is attributed to Demetris Lambrou.

The best season for the club was 1968–69 in which they finished 6th in the first division.
