Koloman Gögh (Hungarian: Gőgh Kálmán; born 7 January 1948, Kladno – 11 November 1995 Gattendorf, Austria) was a professional Czechoslovak[1] footballer.

Gögh was born in Kladno in what is today the Czech Republic, but began playing football in Kolárovo (Slovakia), a city currently with over 80% of Hungarian minority. He played in teams that are currently Slovakian and had ties with the Hungarian minority in Slovakia, there are partially contradicting claims as to whether he was a Slovak or Hungarian player. Most of his career took place in the Czechoslovak state, and because of his ties to all three nations all claims are partially correct.

After that he played for the junior team of Komárno, and fulfilled his national service duties in Dukla Holešov serving as a paratrooper.

After military service, Gögh resumed his football career at Š.K. Slovan Bratislava. He played for Czechoslovakia national football team in 1975 and 1976 when they won the 1976 European Football Championship; in that period he played in 55 matches and scored one goal. Gögh was a participant in the 1980 UEFA European Championship.

Later he worked as coach, returning from a game Gögh died in a car accident.[2] FK Kolárovo named stadium in his honour Štadión Kolomana Gögha.[3]
