Stjarnan F.C. is an Icelandic sports club specialising in football, located in Garðabær, which currently plays in the Úrvalsdeild (Men's Premier Division) league in the Icelandic football division system, having won promotion from the 1. deild in the fall of 2008.

The club gained worldwide fame when their elaborate goal celebrations, including a highly choreographed depiction of landing a fish, a human bicycle, and an imitation of a Rambo shooting spree, were published widely across the Internet and football television shows. [1]
