Wolfgang Seel (born June 21, 1948 in Kirkel) is a retired German football player. He spent 12 seasons in the Bundesliga with 1. FC Kaiserslautern, Fortuna Düsseldorf and 1. FC Saarbrücken. He represented Germany 6 times, including UEFA Euro 1976 qualifier against Bulgaria and 5 friendlies.

In the 1979 German Cup (DFB Pokal) Final, played on June 23 in Hannover against Hertha BSC of Berlin, Seel scored the winning goal in Fortuna's 1:0 victory in the 116th minute.[1] Seel intercepted a pass a Berlin defender had played back to his own goalkeeper, Norbert Nigbur, swerved around the lunging goaltender and scored with just four minutes to play in extra time. Under the rules in place at that time, had the game ended in a draw it would have been replayed several days later. Seel's goal earned Fortuna their first-ever Cup and made him a hero in Düsseldorf.

Wolfgang Seel also scored twice in Fortuna Düsseldorf's historic 7:1 win over FC Bayern München in the 1978/79 season, one of Fortuna Düsseldorf's highest-ever victories and one of the worst defeats in FC Bayern's history.[2]
