Boldklubben Skjold af 1915 is a Danish football club from Østerbro, Copenhagen founded in 1915. They currently play in the Danish 2nd Division West. The club has over 1,400 members making it one of Denmark's greatest populated football clubs. BK Skjold's teams use either Fælledparken or Ryparken for their training sessions.

As of the 2011/2012 season Skjold is playing in the Danish 2nd Division West due to a random draw after the promotions from the 4th tier league Danmarksserien resulted in an unbalance in teams playing in the East and West 2nd divisions. 18 teams were to play in the Danish 2nd Division East while only 14 teams were to play in the Danish 2nd Division West. To solve this problem Danish Football Association drew 2 random teams from the eastern division to play in the western division – This resulted in BK Skjold and Lolland-Falster Alliancen joining the Danish 2nd Division West. Skjold played their first game in Danish 2nd Division West on 7 August 2011 versus heavy favourites and Jutland-based Thisted FC and the game ended 2–2.

On 5 June 2012, Skjold were relegated to Danmarksserien, along with local Østerbro rivals, Boldklubben af 1893.
