Club Fields Norbritz Hokkaido (クラブフィールズ・ノルブリッツ北海道?) is a Japanese football club from Ebetsu, Hokkaido, within the Sapporo metropolitan area. They play in the Hokkaido League, the regionalized fourth level of the Japanese football league system. It was founded on 1985 as Hokkaido Electric Power Company F.C., as a branch of the regional utility. In 2004 the club changed its name to Norbritz, and began as an independent entity.

The club name of Norbritz is made from the German words "nord" and "blitz", meaning Northern Lightning.

They have won the Hokkaido League a record 17 times. In 2012, after winning the Hokkaido League, Norbritz played the Regional League promotion series, ending in third place and therefore qualifying to play a play-off series against the 17th-placed team of the 2012 Japan Football League, Tochigi Uva F.C.. They barely lost the series on penalties and therefore missed the chance to play in the JFL.
