Ingegerd Marie Hammarström (born 29 March 1982), born in Glanshammar, Sweden, is a former football midfielder who played for Damallsvenskan teams KIF Örebro DFF, Umeå IK and Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC. She represented the Sweden women's national football team at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup, and scored the decisive goal against France to give her team third place in the tournament.[2] She is the twin sister of Kristin Hammarström.[3] Hammarström scored a goal in the quarterfinal against Iceland during the UEFA Women's Euro 2013.

In November 2013 both sisters announced their immediate retirement from football.[4] A year later, after the birth of her first child, Hammarström was reportedly in talks with Sweden coach Pia Sundhage about a playing comeback.[5]
