Harald Wapenaar (born 10 April 1970 in Vlaardingen, South Holland) is a former Dutch football goalkeeper.

Wapenaar has played for Italian club Udinese Calcio and FC Utrecht, whom he left for Portsmouth in the summer of 2003. He joined Vitesse in January 2005.

Portsmouth signed Wapenaar as competition for first-choice goalkeeper Shaka Hislop. However, Hislop's superb form and the emergence of young goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown meant Wapenaar struggled for games prior to his move back to the Netherlands. Until the 2006/2007 season, he was able to maintain his place in the first eleven at the Arnhem based club.

On 2007 he signed on loan to Sparta Rotterdam, starting at the Eredivisie on January 21 against Excelsior Rotterdam.
