Pierre Bini (2 August 1923 - 21 June 1991) was a French footballer from Laragne-Montéglin. He is the father of Bruno Bini.

He spent most of his career as a center half or right winger at Stade de Reims, where initially he was nicknamed Le chèvre ("the goat") because of his long legs, but soon became the darling of fans at Auguste-Delaune Stadium.

Bini played one season with the AS Saint-Etienne during the season 1951-1952 before ending his playing career due to multiple knee injuries.

Bini then developed a family business before entering politics, and was mayor of Laragne-Montéglin, Vice President of General Council of the Hautes-Alpes and a Regional Adviser. Today the stadium in his hometown is named Stade Pierre-Bini.[1]
