Steven ("Steve") van Dorpel (December 13, 1965 in Amsterdam June 7, 1989 in Paramaribo) was a Dutch-Suriname footballer. During his career he played for FC Volendam.

He died at the age of 23, killed in the Surinam Airways Flight PY764 air crash in Paramaribo on June 7, 1989. He was nicknamed "De parel van de Bijlmer" (The pearl of the Bijlmer), named after the Bijlmer district in Amsterdam where he lived. He was the nephew of fellow professional footballers Kevin Bobson and Etiënne Esajas and went to the same high school as Ortwin Linger, who also died in the crash.
