The Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China (Traditional Chinese: 中國香港體育協會暨奧林匹克委員會; in short SF&OC, 港協暨奧委會) is the national olympic committee (NOC) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. As such it is a separate member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The current president is Timothy Fok. The headquarter building is called the Hong Kong Olympic House, located beside Hong Kong Stadium.

Although Hong Kong is not an independent sovereign state, the territory is guaranteed by its constitution, the Basic Law, the right to join international organisations that are not restricted to sovereign states under the name "Hong Kong, China". Before the People's Republic of China (PRC) assumed sovereignty over the British crown colony in 1997, the committee was named Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong and participated in 12 games (all summer).
