Faouzi Chaouchi (born 5 December 1984 in Bordj Ménaïel, Boumerdès Province) is an Algerian professional football player who currently plays as a goalkeeper for Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1 club MC Alger and the Algerian national team.

Chaouchi alongside Karim Ziani and Antar Yahia are considered to be national heroes by many Algerians as they put in a heroic performance in the play-off that put the Algerian national football team into their first World Cup finals since 1986 at the expense of bitter rivals Egypt. He constantly denied the Egyptian national team any scoring opportunities. Chaouchi was only 23 years of age at the time of the play-off and played in place of suspended Lounès Gaouaoui. It was only Chaouchi's third cap during that unforgettable night in the Al Merreikh Stadium, Omdurman (Sudan). In 2010, Chaouchi was known to have been Algeria's highest-paid footballer, earning roughly around 13 million Algerian dinars.
