Sigvard Emanuel "Sigge" Parling (26 March 1930 – 17 September 2016) was a Swedish football player. He also played ice hockey and bandy.

During his career he played for Djurgårdens IF (1949–1960), IK Sirius (1960–1963) and Gefle IF (1963–1965). His position was left midfielder and was considered a very rough but fair player.

He won the Swedish Championship twice with Djurgårdens IF, 1955 and 1959. Parling was part of the legendary Swedish national team at the 1958 FIFA World Cup and was capped 37 times for his country.

Parling is the only player from Djurgårdens IF who has played a World Cup Final. He died on 17 September 2016 at the age of 86.
