Božo Broketa (24 December 1922 - 1985) was a Yugoslavian football (soccer) player. He spent most of his career with Hajduk Split.

Broketa is well known for sending Hajduk's rival Dinamo Zagreb a congratulatory telegram after its 1951 championship victory over Serbian side FK Crvena Zvezda stating Dok je srca, bit će i Croatije (While there is heart, there will be Croatia too).

A football academy in Dubrovnik is named after him.
