Tibor Kemeny (5 March 1913[1]–1992) also referred to as Kemeny Tibor, was a Hungarian football player and coach, who played as a forward for Ferencvarosi TC[2] and the Hungarian national team (9 caps).[3] He was part of the team in the 1934 World Cup.[4] He played one match in World Cup, against Austria in the quarter finals (Hungary lost 2-1).[5] With Ferencvaros, he faced Juventus twice in 1938.[6]

As a coach, he managed Ujpest FC in the 1949-50 season, and Olympiacos in 1957-58. With Olympiacos, he celebrated a League title and a Cup, succeeding the double in his only season in the team. He worked the 4-2-4, and with him as coach, Olympiacos played great football, that Marton Bukovi continued when he came to Piraeus.

Kemeny also managed MTK Hungaria in 1955, leading the team to win the Mitropa Cup this season and Zagłębie Sosnowiec.[7]
