Fótbóltsfelagið Giza (since 2012 Giza/Hoyvík) is a Faroese football club based in the capital Tórshavn. The team plays its home matches on Niðari Vøllur (the Lower Field) in Gundadalur. Earlier they played their home matches in Argir.

The club was founded 1 January 1968 as Nólsoyar Ítróttarfelag - often abbreviated to NÍF - representing the isle of Nólsoy, even though the team played its matches in Tórshavn. The club changed their name to FF Giza on 1 January 2010.[1] Their hometown was also changed from Nólsoy to Tórshavn.[2] In 2012 the two clubs FF Giza and FC Hoyvík merged into Giza/Hoyvík. Their best team played in 2. deild (the third best division). They were number three, only the difference in goals kept them from getting promotion to 1. deild, TB Tvøroyri and Giza/Hoyvík had 40 points, but TB Tvøroyri got promoted and Giza/Hoyvík will continue to play in 2. deild in 2013.
