Tseng Shu-o ( ; born September 6, 1984 in Taoyuan, Kaohsiung County - now part of Kaohsiung City) is a Taiwanese aboriginal female football player from the Bunun tribe. She has represented Chinese Taipei since 2002, and she received the Most Valuable Player award in the AFC U-19 Women's Championship in 2002.

Unlike most female players in the country that give themselves to teaching or other careers after graduating from college, Tseng kept seeking opportunities to play abroad. In March 2009, she passed the test provided by Fukuoka J. Anclas, a club in the Japanese L. League Division 2. However, because the Fukuoka club does not pay wages to players, she gave it up due to lacking stable financial assistance for living in Japan. In September, she joined Canberra United FC of Australian W-League with Chinese Taipei teammate Lin Chiung-ying.

Tseng made her debut for Canberra United in 2009 W-League season's first-round game against Sydney FC on October 11, 2009. However, she could not help the team and Canberra lost 1-2. On October 17, she scored her first goal in the 3rd-round game in which Canberra had a 2-2 draw with Perth Glory. On October 24, 2009, she scored twice, in a 2-0 victory for Canberra United over Melbourne Victory. The second goal was particularly sublime, as she weaved through defenders and rounded the goalkeeper to score.

Tseng has also made an impression for Canberra United, with her striking purple-coloured hair.
