Fritz Laband (1 November 1925 3 January 1982) was a German footballer.

He was born in Hindenburg.

He was part of the West German team that won the 1954 FIFA World Cup. In total he earned four caps for West Germany. During his club career he played for FC Anker Wismar, Hamburger SV and Werder Bremen.

His standard position being that of a right full back, Laband was a thorough-going and powerful player with good long range passing ability. With his international debut coming less than two months before the 1954 FIFA World Cup, he managed to play in three of Germany's six games at that tournament. For the semi final and the final, coach Sepp Herberger however decided to move his Hamburg club teammate Josef Posipal to the right back position.
