Benjamin Nivet (born 1977-01-02 in Chartres) is a French professional football (soccer) player. He is an attacking midfielder and was at Ligue 1 club Troyes AC from 2002 to 2007. He signed a three year contact with Caen on 8 June 2007 a club newly promoted to ligue 1

Starting his career as a youth with AJ Auxerre, Nivet made his first league appearances in the 1997-98 season. However, by the end of the following season, he had made only twelve further appearances and was sent on loan to Ligue 2 club LB Châteauroux for the 1999-2000 season before making the move permanent for the next season.

After establishing himself as a regular for Châteauroux, he made the step back up to Ligue 1 with Troyes in January 2002. Despite a slow start, Nivet established himself as a regular in Troyes' 2002-03 relegation season, and has been almost ever-present since.

Wearing the number 10 shirt, Nivet has proved that he has an eye for goal, weighing in with 12 goals in Troyes' promotion season in 2005-06.
