NK Iskra, commonly known as Iskra Bugojno or just Iskra (meaning "spark" in Bosnian) is an association football club from the town of Bugojno in central Bosnia and Herzegovina. Their home matches are played at the Jaklić stadium which can seat 12,000 spectators.

Founded in 1946, the club spent most of its history playing in lower Yugoslav divisions. It's greatest success in the Yugoslav period was winning the 1983–84 Yugoslav Second League West division, and participating in 1984–85 Yugoslav First League, their only top level season during the period.[1] Although they were immediately relegated in 1984–85, they won the 1985 Mitropa Cup.

After the breakup of Yugoslavia, Iskra played several seasons in the Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and as of 2016–17 the club is a member of the First League of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, one of two second-tier divisions in the country.
