Franz Burgmeier (born 7 April 1982) is a Liechtenstein football defender, who plays for FC Vaduz in the Swiss Challenge League. Born in Triesen, Burgmeier was a burgeoning footballer and keen skier, until he gave up the latter sport at 16 following a serious injury. Having been a youth player for FC Triesen, he started his professional career with FC Vaduz. Burgmeier won several Liechtensteiner Cups with Vaduz, who were promoted to the Swiss Challenge League in 2001, and played in the UEFA Cup. After two unsuccessful attempts to win promotion to the Swiss Super League, Burgmeier left for FC Aarau in 2005. He spent only one season with Aarau before a move to the previous season's runners-up FC Basel in 2006. His two seasons with Basel were broken up by a loan spell with FC Thun, before he moved to England with Darlington in August 2008, where he played for one year.

Burgmeier has won 64 caps and scored seven goals for his country. He is a right-footed player who is either a left midfielder or left back, with the ability to deliver a good cross. He made his international debut in 2001 against Spain and three years later scored one of the goals that helped secure his country's first point in World Cup qualification matches.
