Tommy Homlgren (born 9 January 1959) is a Swedish retired football player. Holmgren played his whole career for IFK Göteborg and won four Allsvenskan titles, three Swedish cups and two UEFA Cups with them. He also played several matches for Swedens football team.

In a world cup qualifier against Malta in 1984, Holmgren got kicked in the head by an opponent. He was out for a long time and when he came back he wasn't as good as he had been before, before the incident many European clubs wanted to sign Holmgren but after it, nearly all of them stopped trying to sign him and he instead played on for Göteborg.
