Quinton Fortune (born 21 May 1977) is a South African former footballer who was able to play both as a midfielder and as a defender. He moved to Europe at the age of 14 to play for English club Tottenham Hotspur, but work permit issues meant a move to Spain with Mallorca in 1995. He joined Atlético Madrid a year later, but during his three years there he made only six appearances in La Liga, playing mostly for the club's B team. His performances earned him a move back to England with Manchester United in 1999, and he spent seven years there as a part of manager Alex Ferguson's squad.

He was released at the end of the 2005–06 season before joining Bolton Wanderers on a one-year contract. However, injuries limited his opportunities with the club and he was released at the end of his contract. After trial periods with Blackburn Rovers, Sunderland and Sheffield United, he eventually moved to Italian club Brescia in October 2008. After only four months there, he signed for Belgian club Tubize on a short-term contract, before another return to England with Doncaster Rovers for the first half of the 2009–10 season.

He also earned 46 caps for South Africa, and played at the 1998 and the 2002 World Cups.
