Verdes FC (previously Hankook Verdes) is a Belizean association football club which competes in the Belize Premier Football League. They are based in Benque Viejo del Carmen, a town situated on the border of Guatemala. The club was established in 1976 as Real Verdes Football Club and changed their name to Hankook Verdes in 2004. The club is one of the oldest active professional football teams in Belize and has been in existence since the inception of the Football Federation of Belize. Their home games are played at Marshalleck Stadium.

The club has established an excellent reputation for the development of many past and current members of the Belize national football team, despite not having won any club championships at the national level until 2008.

In 1985, Hankook Verdes was the first team to represent Belize in the CONCACAF Champions' Cup. Throughout the history of Belizean football, Real Verdes has represented its country more than any other club in Belize. The list of CONCACAF opponents includes professional teams such as Cruz Azul, UNAM, Santos Laguna, Querétaro (Mexico); Real España, Platense, Pumas UNAH (Honduras); Xelajú, Municipal, Comunicaciones, (Guatemala); San Francisco (Panama); and Luis Ángel Firpo (El Salvador). Hankook Verdes has the most UNCAF Club Tournament appearances of any Belize Football Club.
