John Alvbåge (-svˈjɔn ˈɑlvboːɡɛ; born 10 August 1982 in Torslanda, Gothenburg) is a Swedish professional footballer, who is a goalkeeper for Örebro SK in Allsvenskan. He has played four matches for the Sweden national football team and was selected for the Swedish squad at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

After playing for local club Torslanda IK, he joined Västra Frölunda IF and debuted in the Swedish Allsvenskan championship, only 18 years old. He then moved to Örebro SK in 2003, before joining IFK Göteborg in 2005. He only stayed half a season at IFK Göteborg, where he was a backup for former Swedish international goalkeeper Bengt Andersson. He moved abroad later that same year, being bought by Danish club Viborg FF in July 2005. Bought as a replacement for Danish international goalkeeper Jesper Christiansen, Alvbåge quickly established himself in the Viborg team, and debuted for the Swedish national team in January 2006. He returned to Örebro SK during the summer of 2008.
