Poul Mejer (2 November 1931 – 9 January 2000) was a Danish international football player.


Poul Mejer played his entire career for Vejle Boldklub, where he got 307 caps for the club's first team.

Mejer was known for his fantastic pace, which was his primary weapon. From his wing position he created lots of goal for his team mates and if they could not score, Mejer would score the goals himself.

Poul Mejer experienced two league promotions with Vejle Boldklub in 1952 and 1956.

In 1958 Poul Mejer was part in one of the biggest triumphs in the history of Vejle Boldklub as the club won The Double. Poul Mejer played a major role in the Cup final as he scored the winner against rivals AGF.

The triumph was followed up in the 1959 season as Vejle went on to win the Danish title once again.

In 1960 Poul Mejer played for Denmark at the Olympics in Rome, where the Danish team sensationally reached the final after beating favourites Hungary in the semi final.

Poul Mejer played his last match for Vejle Boldklub the third of April 1966.
