Broń Radom is a Polish football club based in Radom, Poland.

The history of the organization dates back to 1926, when workers of FB "Łucznik" Radom formed the Club of Cyclists and Motorcyclists Bron (Polish word bron means weapon in English, as FB Lucznik, main sponsor of the club, is a manufacturer of firearms). In the course of time, other departments were added, and the organization changed name into Sports Club Bron. With financial support of the Lucznik plant, Bron emerged as the largest sports organization in the city of Radom. By the early 1930s, Bron had such departments, as archery, tennis, boxing, volleyball, cycling and football. Construction of a new stadium and a swimming pool was initiated, and a cycling track was built.

The organization continued to prosper after World War Two. In the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, Bron’s own Kazimierz Pazdzior won gold medal in lightwight boxing. Bron’s cyclist Andrzej Michalak qualified to the 1980 Olympic Games, also its tennis players were recognized nationwide.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Bron’s football team played in the second tier of Polish football system. Among most famous players who began their careers there were Kazimierz Przybys, Tomasz Dziubinski (two caps for Poland), and Rafal Siadaczka (17 caps for Poland).

In 1996, several departments became independent, and football team was renamed into Radom Football Club 1926 Bron Radom.
