Tony Hopper (born 31 May 1976 in Carlisle, Cumbria) is an English former professional football player who played as a midfielder.

Hopper began his career at Carlisle United before Roddy Collins brought him to Bohemians in August 2000. He made his debut away to UCD soon after signing. Though much maligned during his time at the club, he scored a vital goal in December of that year in a 1-0 win over Longford Town. He left the club a month later to return to England. His winner against Longford would prove crucial as Bohemians went on to win the league by 2 points. He appeared in the famous Jimmy Glass game against Plymouth Argyle, in which the goalkeeper scored in the 94th minute to keep Carlisle United in the Football League.

He has also played for Barrow and Workington.

In November 2012 he joined Celtic Nation until the end of the season. In January 2017, Tony was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and he was the guest of honour at Carlisle United's game against Portsmouth. A fundraising page has been set up in his name to help fight back against this disease.
