Branislav Hrnjiček (Serbian Cyrillic: Бpaниcлaв Xpњичeк; 5 June 1908 – 2 July 1964) was a Serbian football player and manager.

He spent all of his playing career in Belgrade, having played mostly for SK Jugoslavija; the exception being the two seasons he spent playing between 1930 and 1932 with BASK.

He played a total of five matches for the Yugoslavia national football team and scored once. His debut was in a Balkan Cup match on 6 October 1929, against Romania in Bucharest, a 2–1 loss, and his last match was in a friendly against Argentina on 3 August 1930, in Buenos Aires, a 3–1 loss.
