František Havránek (11 July 1923 – 26 March 2011) was a Czech football manager and former player.

As a player, Havránek played for several lower-division Czechoslovak clubs, but never gained any success with them[citation needed]. He was far more successful as a football coach. After finishing his active career, Havránek started to work as a football manager. He coached Spartak Hradec Králové, Slavia Prague and FC Zbrojovka Brno in Czechoslovakia. Havránek also managed Cypriot EPA Larnaca, AEL Limassol and Polish Ruch Chorzów. In 1970, he won the Cypriot First Division with EPA Larnaca. In 1985, he won the Cypriot Cup with AEL Limassol.[1] Two years later he returned to Czechoslovakia and ended his coaching career.[2]

As a coach of the Czechoslovak Olympic team at the 1980 Summer Olympics, he won the gold medal with his team. From 1978 to 1984 he was a general manager of the Czechoslovakia national football team, coaching the team from 1982 to 1984.
