Jacek Bąk (Polish pronunciation: [ˈjat͡sɛk ˈbɔŋk]; born 24 March 1973) is a retired Polish footballer who played as a defender. He made 96 appearances for the Poland national football team, joint-fourth with Jacek Krzynówek.
In Bąk's first season with Lech Poznań, he won the Polish championship title, before catching the eye of the Polish coach, who gave him his first international cap against Cyprus. Bąk was transferred to Lyon in 1995.
Bąk represented his nation in the 2002 FIFA World Cup held in South Korea and Japan, and the 2006 edition in Germany, as well as UEFA Euro 2008. All three tournaments ended with group-stage elimination.
In November 2006, Bąk claimed he was offered €10,000 to concede a penalty in a UEFA Euro 2008 qualifying fixture between Belgium and Poland in Belgium's favour. UEFA opened an investigation. On 14 July 2008, following the end of the tournament, he announced that he was retiring from international football.
