Willy Brokamp (born 25 February 1946 in Kerkrade) is a former footballplayer For MVV Maastricht in the 1960s and 1970s who recruited him from RKVV Chèvremont (in the community of Kerkrade). His nickname was "The blond arrow".

In 1974, he transferred to Ajax Amsterdam, where he himself had two very good seasons (1974/75, 1975/76) (without him Ajax would have sunk even deeper during that period).
