Amit Ben Shushan (Hebrew: עמית בן שושן‎; born March 20, 1985 in Jerusalem) is an Israeli football player. He is currently playing Maccabi Netanya.

Ben Shushan can play as a striker or as a supporting forward on the wing.

He made a name for himself after his series of goals during Beitar's Intertoto campaign in 2005.

He made his debut for the Israel national football team vs Estonia on September 2, 2006 when he came in as a sub for fellow team-mate Michael Zandberg. In the next match vs Andorra he played for 90 minutes scoring his first senior goal for his country and assisting for 2 more goals. On October 7, Ben Shushan scored Israel's only goal in the away match against Russia securing a draw that could have turned vital for Israel.

Ben Shushan is part of a group of young players who helped transform Beitar Jerusalem's youth into a leading Israeli soccer academy. At the time he joined Beitar, city rival Hapoel Jerusalem was still the leading youth team in Jerusalem. Despite living less than 200 meters away from Hapoel Jerusalem's training facility in Kiryat-Hayovel, Ben Shushan opted for Beitar.

Anorthosis Famagusta[edit]

On 10 of July 2013, Shushan signed 2 years contract[1] with yearly wages close to 140,000 euro. [2]
