Albin Pelak (born April 9, 1981 in Novi Pazar) is a Bosnian football player.

Albin Pelak is a current FK Olimpik Sarajevo and former FK Željezničar football player. He is most famous in Bosnian and Sarajevo circles for signing with Željezničar after making an explicit promise to Sarajevo supporters that he would never play there.

Prior to signing with Željezničar, Pelak was one of the most popular players for Sarajevo, earning the praise of the press as well supporters for his high work rate and leadership ability. He was a key part of Sarajevo's exceptionally talented youth squad composed of players born in 1981/1982 that was one of the most talented squads in Bosnia-Herzegovina's history. Many players from that generation such as Alen Škoro, Džemal Berberović, Damir Mirvić went on to have relatively successful careers in Europe.

Pelak himself also made several tries, albeit unsuccessful at playing abroad, going to Cerezo Osaka of Japan in 2002 and Dinamo Zagreb of neighboring Croatia in 2003. While he did not stay at either club for very long, it has been reported that he has been paid handsomely for his failed bids abroad; his deal with Cerzo Osaka reportedly netted him -1 million. On April 4 2009 Pelak has had ended his contract with FK Zeljeznicar and has signed new contract with FK Olimpik Sarajevo that is currently playing in Premier League.
