Svetozar Šapurić (Serbian Cyrillic: Светозар Шапурић; born 28 August 1960) is a Serbian football manager and former player. He is the current director of football of APOEL.[1]

Šapurić started out at his hometown club Vrbas, spending eight seasons in the senior squad (1977–1985),[2] before securing a move to Vojvodina. He was a member of the team that won the Yugoslav First League in 1989.[3] Subsequently, Šapurić moved abroad to Cyprus and signed with APOEL. He later switched to Anorthosis (1993–1995), before returning to APOEL.

After finishing his playing career, Šapurić was briefly manager of APOEL in 1996. He later served as the director of football at his former club Vojvodina from September 1996 to October 1999.[4] Afterwards, Šapurić returned to Cyprus for his second brief spell as manager of APOEL in 2000.

Šapurić acquired Cypriot citizenship while playing in the country during the 1990s.
