Ismo Vorstermans (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɪsmoː ˈvɔrstərmɑns]; born 30 March 1989) is a Dutch footballer who currently plays as a defender for SV Spakenburg in the Dutch Topklasse.


Vorstermans started his career in the famous youth system of AFC Ajax before moving to FC Utrecht. He made his professional debut for the club on 23 September 2009 in a KNVB Cup match against FC Groningen (2-4 loss). He played the full 90 minutes, but was replaced by Nana Akwasi Asare in extra time. For the 2010-11 season he got promoted to the first squad of FC Utrecht, where he made his debut in European football in the qualification match versus KF Tirana. In the game that ended in 1-1 FC Utrecht defended a 4-0 win from the first leg and an early 0-1 lead by a goal from Ricky van Wolfswinkel. He scored his first on goal for Utrecht in the 3-0 win over Ajax on 23 January 2011, scoring the 3rd goal from an Michael Silberbauer's pass.

During the 2011-12 campaign, Vorstermans joined VVV-Venlo on loan until the end of the season. His loan was extended with one season from the summer of 2012. After his contract with FC Utrecht had been released in July 2013, Vorstermans joined FC Dordrecht as a free agent in August 2013. After just a week at the club the technical director of FC Dordrecht, Marco Boogers, announced on Twitter that the 24-year-old Vorstermans retired as professional footballer to focus on his education. Vorstermans played one game for FC Dordrecht against Excelsior in which he made one goal. This was his last game as professional footballer.
