Ainslie Football Club is a semi-professional Australian rules football club based in Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory.

The club formed in 1927 and won its first premiership in 1929. They now play in the North East Australian Football League (NEAFL).

Ex-St Kilda star Kevin Neale was captain-coach for six seasons (1978–1983), during which time Ainslie won four premierships: 1979, 1980, 1982, 1983. The club was also coached by former VFL/AFL great David Cloke.

The club entered the NEAFL for the competition's inaugural season in 2011 - finishing the year as Eastern Conference premiers.
