Futbolo Klubas Ekranas is a Lithuanian football club, playing in the town of Panevėžys.

The club was founded in 1964.

It has won Lithuanian championships in 1985, 1993, 2005, 2008 and 2009, the Lithuanian Cup in 1985, 1998 and 2000, and the Lithuanian Super Cup in 1998 and 2006.

On 5 November 2004, before the A Lyga champion-deciding match against FBK Kaunas, the club was controversially expelled from the first division by the National Football Club Association (NFKA) for alleged match fixing, but reinstated a day later.

In August 2006 FK Ekranas won the first Baltic Champion's Cup tournament in Liepāja after beating Estonian champions TVMK Tallinn 6-4 and drawing with the home side Liepājas Metalurgs 1-1.
