Lionel Cappone (born February 8, 1979) is a French professional football player. He plays for Stade Brestois and is a goalkeeper.

Born in Marignane, a suburb of Marseille, he began his career at his local club, Olympique de Marseille. However, after several seasons without playing a single match, he joined Besançon RC, where he played every match in the 2002 03 Ligue 2 season.

Moving to another Ligue 2 club, Dijon FCO, he played just three matches in the 2003 04 season before moving to Angers SCO.

He moved to Ligue 1 club FC Lorient ahead of the 2006 07 season, where he was handed the number 1 shirt.

Cappone's debut for Lorient came on Saturday, October 28, 2006, when he was brought on 12 minutes into Lorient's match against Valenciennes FC to replace the injured Fabien Audard. However, it lasted all of 12 minutes; after taking down an opposing striker, he was sent off and had to be replaced by midfielder Ulrich Le Pen, who make a few very good saves in Lorient's 1 0 shutout victory.

In July 2011 signed a two-year contract with Stade Brestois.
