Axel Smeets (born 12 July 1974 in Brussels, Belgium) is a former football (soccer) defender, who could also play as a midfielder. During his career he played for several Belgian clubs and also played overseas for UD Salamanca, Sheffield United and MKE Ankaragücü, where he had several experiences (good and bad) and ended his career in Norway with HamKam due to a hip injury. The bad recovery from this injury prevented him from signing a 3 years contract for Club Brugge. He also won 25 caps without scoring for the Belgium Under-21s.

The Norwegian Athletes Association had Smeets as right back on their football Team of the Year 2004.

After passing his Licence, he decided to take the Exam, which he also successfully passed. He's now devoting himself to his player's careers.
