The Ansonia Black Knights were a minor league American football team based in Ansonia, Connecticut. They began play in the Atlantic Coast Football League in 1962.

As with many minor league football teams of the era, Ansonia was plagued by poor attendance and financial difficulties. After just two seasons in the league, the ACFL revoked the Black Knights' franchise at a league meeting in February 1964 and replaced them with the Hartford Charter Oaks.
