Vincent van den Berg (born 19 January 1989, Schiedam) is a Dutch footballer, who currently plays for Excelsior Maassluis. He can play as a midfielder, winger or striker.

Van den Berg played as a youth for SC Heerenveen, moving to Arsenal aged 17 in mid 2006. He has played for both Arsenal's Academy (U18) and Reserve teams, but has only played in pre-season friendlies for the first team, most notably as a substitute in Dennis Bergkamp's testimonial match.

Van den Berg has played for the Netherlands U17 team, and was a member of the side that reached third place in the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Peru in 2005.

On January 7, 2008 Arsenal officially confirmed he would go on loan to Go Ahead Eagles for the second half of the 2007-08 season. He made his debut in a friendly match against Samsunspor, during which he was injured and had to be substituted after 25 minutes. After recovering, he went on to play four games for Go Ahead, but did not score any goals.

On 12 August 2008, Van den Berg joined FC Zwolle on loan, for the 2008-09 season, but did not play for the first team, due to injuries.

With his Arsenal contract due to expire in the summer of 2009, he was offered a trial with Sparta Rotterdam, but was again injured. He has since signed a one year contract with Hoofdklasse side Excelsior Maassluis.
