Ian Timothy Frodsham (22 December 1975 – 2 January 1995) was an English footballer who was at Liverpool. He joined the club as an under-11, from Brookfield School in Kirkby. He signed his professional contract at 17, and played regularly with the Liverpool reserves. He died at age 19 from a spinal tumour.

Liverpool Football Academy's indoor arena is named the Ian Frodsham Indoor Arena, and the club's young player of the year award is named the Ian Frodsham Memorial Award. There is also an Ian Frodsham Tournament held at the Academy for school children in the Kirkby area.

In Christmas 2008, Liverpool youngster Stephen Darby won the Ian Frodsham Young Player Of The Year Award, for "his good development and progression over the last 12 months, and his outstanding off-the-field behaviour". The award was given by the Official Liverpool Supporters Club.
