Scott McIvor (born 9 August 1966 in Queensland) is a former Australian rules footballer who played mainly with the Brisbane Bears but also had stints with Fitzroy and when both clubs merged, the Brisbane Lions.

Prior to starting his VFL career, McIvor captained his home state Queensland in the Teal Cup. At the age of 17 he was recruited by Fitzroy and finished second in their 1986 best and fairest before winning it in 1987.

The following season he returned home to Queensland and joined the Brisbane Bears who were playing just their second season in the AFL. McIvor remained with the club for ten seasons until they merged with Fitzroy for the 1997 season. He finished with 138 games for the Bears, only Roger Merrett and Marcus Ashcroft managed more. He spent just the one season with the newly formed Lions before injury forced him to retire.

After Fitzroy and Brisbane combined their respective histories in 2001, the club unveiled a new 200 game honor board at the Gabba which included Fitzroy, Brisbane, and Brisbane Lion players. The board was hung in the players' rooms with a replica for the members' area. The board itself was christened the 'Curcio-McIvor' board, in honor of past players Frank Curcio and Scott McIvor.[1]

In 2003 he was named as a wingman in the Queensland Team of the Century.
