Terry Rowe (born June 8, 1964 in London) is a retired English professional footballer. He spent three seasons in the American Professional Soccer League, eight in the Major Indoor Soccer League, four in the Continental Indoor Soccer League and two in the National Professional Soccer League.

Rowe began his career on the Brentford F.C. youth teams when he was fifteen. He turned professional with Brentford and played 105 games before a change of managers put him on the second team. In 1984, scouts from the Wichita Wings of the Major Indoor Soccer League approached him and he moved to the United States. He remained with the Wings until 1990. On July 6, 1990, he signed a one year contract with the Cleveland Crunch. However, in September, he discovered that the move to Cleveland voided his work visa and he returned to the Wings. In February 1991, he signed with the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the American Professional Soccer League. He finished the MISL season with Wichita, then joined the Rowdies in April. In August 1991, he rejoined the Wings for the 1991-1992 MISL season, then was back with the Rowdies in the summer of 1992. This season the Rowdies went to the APSL championship game before losing to the Colorado Foxes. By this time, the MISL had collapsed and the Wings moved to the National Professional Soccer League. The move led to a complete revamping of their roster and Rowe was not offered a contract. He returned to England to seek a new team there, but returned to the United States after Terry Nicholl, ex-coach of the Wings asked him to come play for the Dayton Dynamo which Nicholl was now coaching in the NPSL. He played only one month with Dayton before returning to England for a trial with Cambridge F.C. However, he was back with the Rowdies for the 1993 season. He was named team captain, but injures marred his season and he played only eleven games. In 1994, he signed with the Detroit Neon in the Continental Indoor Soccer League. He spent the 1994 and 1995 seasons in Detroit before moving to the Indianapolis Twisters for the 1996 season. He began the 1997 season with the Twisters before being traded in July, along with Rich Ryerson to the Anaheim Splash in exchange for Paul McDonnell and a 1998 first-round draft pick. On October 16, 1997, Rowe signed a short-term contract with the Wings. He played five games, then left to play for an English team. He returned to the Wings in July 1998.
