Tanveer Ahmed (Urdu: تنویر احمد‎; born 15 April 1976) is a Pakistani footballer, who is the former captain of WAPDA FC. He is also the former captain of Pakistan national football team. A mainstay in the national team, the experienced defender has played in many tournaments since his first call up.[1]

Ahmed is a central defender who has been playing for WAPDA FC since he transferred there in 2002 season. He is also a useful right back. Ahmed started his career at Pak Punjab football club Faislabad. And then Ahamed selected for CMF FC where his defensive ability was brought to attention and soon was called up to the national team.

When Ahmed moved to WAPDA FC, he was given the captaincy and won the National Championship in 2003. In the new Pakistan Premier League in 2004, WAPDA were one of the favourites to win the title, but it took until the final day of the season before they were crowned champions. They lost the PPL the following year.

He also captained Lahore Lajpaals F.C. in the inaugural Geo Super Football League 2007 in defence where he was a semi-finalist with the team.

After retiring from international football after the 2010 World Cup qualifiers in 2007, Ahmed became WAPDA's Assistant Manager as well as retaining his squad player status, and helped them with the 2007/8 PPL. However, as a result of these displays on and off the pitch, Tanveer Ahmed was once again called back to the national squad for the AFC Challenge Cup 2008 qualifiers by head coach Akhtar Mohiuddin. After failing to reach the AFC Challenge Cup he retired again.
