Stefan Bengt Pettersson (born March 22, 1963 in Västerås) is a former Swedish footballer, who began his career in the Swedish Allsvenskan with the club IFK Norrköping, before leaving for IFK Göteborg during the 1984 season. The following four years he helped Göteborg win the league twice, become runners-up once, and to one UEFA Cup victory in 1987, in which he scored in the final itself against Dundee United.

In 1988 he was bought by Dutch club AFC Ajax. In the six seasons he spent with Ajax he won the league twice and the Dutch Cup once. In 1992 he won the UEFA Cup again, also scoring in the final again, this time a penalty. He returned to IFK Göteborg in 1994 and won three more league titles. The latter part of his career he had recurring knee problems, which forced him to retire in 1999.

Despite an impressive career, Pettersson only played 31 caps for Sweden, in which he scored four goals. He was born and raised in Västerås, and started his football career at the local club IFK Västerås.
