Anton "Toni" Allemann (6 January 1936 – 3 August 2008) was a Swiss footballer.[1] He began his career at BSC Young Boys in Berne in 1957 at age 21, where he spent four seasons.[2] In 1961, he joined Italian side A.C. Mantova, and later played for PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands, and 1. FC Nürnberg in Germany, before returning home to Switzerland in 1966 to play for Grasshopper-Club Zürich.

At the international level, Allemann played 27 times for the Swiss national team, and scored nine international goals. He made his national-team debut in a friendly match against Sweden in 1958, and was a member of Switzerland's 1962 FIFA World Cup squad.[3] He played his last international match in June 1966, where he scored the qualification goal but he was omitted from Switzerland's World Cup squad the same year.

Allemann died 3 August 2008, aged 72, after suffering a heart attack.[4]
