Urs Suter (born 4 March 1959 in Zürich) is a Swiss former footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Suter started his football with the youth teams of the local football club FC Langnau am Albis before moving on to Grasshopper Club Zürich. He played in their youth team and later in their reserve side. During the 1980-81 and 1981-82 seasons he played for FC Blue Stars Zürich in the swiss 1. Liga.

Urs Suter began his professional career with the newly promoted FC Wettingen, playing 29 games in the 1982 83 season. Suter signed for FC Basel in 1983. With Basel he won the Uhrencup in 1983 and 1986. He played in Basel until the team was relegated after a very disappointing 1988 season. At that point he transferred to FC Zürich and played there for four years. During the season 1989 90 Suter won promotion with Zürich to the Nationalliga A.

In the 1992 93 season, Suter again played for FC Wettingen, but at the end of the season the club was dissolved due to financial reasons. So Suter moved to FC Tuggen in the 1. Liga. The team won the Group championship and were promoted to the Challenge League (then named Nationalliga B). However, a year later the team was placed last in the division and were relegated. Again a year later they were 1. Liga Group winners, but failed in the play-off promotion game with 0:2 against FC Thun. Suter played in Tuggen five years and retired in 1998, concluding his football career with FC Wollishofen in the lower divisions.
