Ion Pârcălab (born 5 November 1941) is a former Romanian football player. He was nicknamed "The Carpathian Arrow" by coach Helenio Herrera.

His last name is sometimes spelled Pîrcălab. He had to change the spelling of his last name in 1953 (due to a Romanian language spelling reform) to Pîrcălab, but in 1993 the spelling was reverted to Pârcălab. Which means the during his football career he had to use the spelling Pîrcălab (see Romanian special letters).

Pârcălab played for UTA Arad, F.C. Dinamo Bucureşti and Nîmes Olympique.

In 1975 he was awarded the title "Best Football Player" in Romania. He won 4 titles in a row with "F.C. Dinamo București" at the Romanian Cup. He also participated in the Tokyo Summer Olimpics in 1964 with the Romanian national team.

While a junior, he won the National Junior Romanian Championship with "UTA Arad" in 1959.

He is the brother of "Dumitrescu III" who used to play for "UTA Arad".
