Sead Kapetanović (born 21 January 1972) is a former Bosnian-Herzegovinian footballer.[1]

Although he came from family known for supporting and even playing for FK Sarajevo (his brother was a professional footballer too), his career began in their biggest rivals, FK Željezničar. His first division debut came in 1990 and he even scored a goal. In 1992, War in Bosnia-Herzegovina escalated and he went to Germany. First, he was playing for some low division clubs, and in the 1994–95 season he moved to second division FSV Frankfurt. In 1995, he moved to VfL Wolfsburg and two years later won promotion to Bundesliga. He collected 104 league appearances for the club until he signed a contract with Borussia Dortmund in summer of 1999. Over the course of two seasons, he did not get much chance to play regularly and that is why he decided to come back to Bosnia and Herzegovina. In total, he made 57 appearances and scored two goals in the Bundesliga. After coming back to his homeland, he played a couple of games for FK Sarajevo, and then retired from professional football.

He made 15 appearances for the Bosnia-Herzegovina national team.[2] His debut came against Italy on 6 November 1996 (Bosnia won 2–1).
