Mario Frustalupi (September 12, 1942 - 14 April 1990) was an Italian footballer, in the role of mid-fielder.

Born in Orvieto (Umbria), he debuted in Italian Serie A in 1963 with Sampdoria, for which he played in 8 seasons. In 1970 he moved to FC Internazionale, then in need of a replace for Luis Suárez, but Frustalupi disappointed the premises. With the Milanese team he won a scudetto reached the final of European Cup, lost against Ajax.

The following years he was sold to SS Lazio. Although often quarrelling with leader star Giorgio Chinaglia, he contributed to make the team one of the strongest in Italy, as showed by the scudetto won in 1974. Also successful was his stint with A.C. Cesena, which under him reached its best result ever (a 6th place in Serie A and the right to play in UEFA Cup).

In 1977 Frustalupi went to Pistoiese, being a protagonist of the first team's promotion to Serie A. He retired in 1981.

He died in a car accident in 1990.
