BSK Saint Petersburg (Russian: БСК Санкт-Петербург) was a bandy club in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The club was founded as «Krasnaya Zarya» (Russian: Красная Заря; "Red Dawn") in 1936 and switched to the name BSK in 2001 for sponsor reasons. The club played one season in the Russian Bandy Super League, the top-tier of Russian bandy, in the 2003/04 season. The home games were played at Stadium Spartak in Saint Petersburg. The club colours were white and blue while the fan club was called "Red Bandy Fans".[1][2]

The club had to cease its activities in 2005 due to financial problems of the main sponsor.[3]
