Vasile Maftei (born 1 January 1981) is a Romanian footballer who plays for and captains Voluntari. He is best known for his leadership qualities, becoming captain for Rapid București, Unirea Urziceni, Concordia Chiajna and Voluntari. Although primarily a central defender, when needed he operates as a right back.

Maftei was formed at Rapid București, where he became a key part of the team, winning one league title in 2003, one Romanian Cup and one Super Cup in 2002. In 2004, following the departure of Adrian Iencsi, he was appointed captain and won two Romanian Cups in a row in 2006 and 2007 and one Super Cup in 2007. He also reached the UEFA Cup quarter-finals with Rapid in 2006, where they were eliminated by Steaua București.

On 26 February 2006, Maftei was called up to the Romania team for the first time, as a replacement for the injured Dorin Goian. Two days later, he scored on his Romania debut against Armenia from a header, in a 2–0 win for his country. Up to now, he managed 12 caps for Romania.
