FC Zaria Bălți is a Moldovan football club based in Bălți, Moldova. They play in the Divizia Națională, the top division in Moldovan football. Between 1992 and 2014 the club was known as Olimpia Bălți.

The club gained worldwide notoriety in December 2009 for putting an online bid through which the winner would awarded a one-year contract as a player with the club.[1] The winner was a Brazilian businessman who had a brief career as a footballer in his native country. Nevertheless, the winning bidder declined the position stating that, since he never paid the application fee, he assumed his bid would not be taken into account.[2] In April 2010 the club called for a new bidding round.[3] The winner was never announced, though.
