Kars SK is a sports club in Kars, Turkey, founded in 1967.

After financial problems and lack of support from the city, Kars SK were closed. In 1995, the club was re-founded as Kars Köy Hizmetleri SK and took its traditional name in a short time. But that was not enough for them to survive in professional football. After hard times in the amateur league, Kars SK gained promotion to TTF Third League in the 2004–2005 season. During the 2007–2008 season, Kars SK made a great effort and were eventually promoted to TFF Second League as third after the game against Aksarayspor on 4 May 2008, which they won 2–1. Karsspor finished in the Second League fourth Classification Group as third in the 2008–2009 season.
