Ray Allsopp (born 20 December 1933) is a former Australian rules football player who played the Richmond Football Club in the Victorian Football League (VFL) from 1955 to 1959. Allsopp played as a rover and was known for reading the ball well off packs.[3] Allsopp represented Victoria in 1957. The 1957 season was Allsopp's best in his VFL career—he kicked a career-high 35 goals and polled six Brownlow Medal votes. He finished his career having played 54 games and having kicked 69 goals.[4]

He went on to become the first full-time administrator in the VFL and was charged with developing Vickick, a junior football program, now known as Auskick. He was given an AFL Life Membership for administration in 2010.
