Josef Bergmaier (March 5, 1909 – March 5, 1943) was a German footballer who played as a forward. Bergmaier played for three clubs in his hometown, Munich - TV 1888, FC Wacker, and, most notably, FC Bayern, where he won the 1932 German football championship, scoring both goals in the final against Eintracht Frankfurt. Between 1930 and 1933 he won 8 caps for Germany, scoring once, in a 2–2 draw with Norway in 1932.

Bergmaier fought in World War II, and died in the Eastern Front on his 34th birthday. His former teammate Franz Krumm died in similar circumstances four days later.
