Franjo Wölfl (18 May 1918 in Zagreb – 8 July 1987 in Zagreb) was a Croatian footballer. He played international football first with the Kingdom of Yugoslavia national team from 1938 and then the Croatian national team from 1940 to 1944. Finally, Wölfl suited up for communist Yugoslavia's national team from 1945 to 1951.

Wölfl spent much of his career with Građanski Zagreb. With Građanski he was the top scorer in the Croatian First League's 1943 season. After World War II, Građanski was disbanded by the communist authorities and Wölfl moved to the regime's newly formed club Dinamo Zagreb. With Dinamo, Wölfl was the Yugoslav First League's top scorer in 1947 and 1948.
