National Sports Training Center football team is the football club in Taiwan's National Sports Training Center. It was merged in 2003 with the Lukuang football team, Taiwan's land army football team, after the option of alternate service in the Taiwanese militia. It participates in Taiwan's Enterprise Football League


Formerly known as the Lukuang football team (Chinese: 陸光足球隊; pinyin: Lùguāng zúqiúduì) or Taiwan Army football team, the NTSC football team belonged to the Republic of China Army and competed in the Chinese Taipei National Football League.

Since the Republic of China has the policy of conscription for all male citizens, qualified footballers could choose to join the Lukuang football team instead of the regular militia service after passing the tryouts. It helped the players to keep their form and provided additional selection and management to the Chinese Taipei national football team. As a result, most national team members have played for Lukuang.

In 2000, Lukuang quit the league due to military reform, but returned in 2003 under the new name of Taiwan National Sports Training Center football team and are affiliated with Taiwan's National Sports Training Center.
