Jacques Glassmann (born July 22, 1962 in Mulhouse) is a former footballer from France.

He is famous for having revealed the bribery scandal involving Olympique de Marseille and his team US Valenciennes. He and fellow teammates, Jorge Burruchaga and Christophe Robert were contacted by OM player Jean-Jacques Eydelie, in order to let l'OM win and, more importantly, not to injure any OM player ahead of the UEFA Champions League final.

He was later considered as a traitor by French supporters.

He was eventually awarded the FIFA Fair Play Award in 1995 for having revealed this bribery scandal.
