Hans Sturm (3 September 1935 – 24 June 2007) was a German football player. He was born in Schönau an der Katzbach, Lower Silesia and died in Cologne.[1]

The goalscoring inside right midfielder, who won the first Bundesliga trophy with 1. FC Köln in 1964, played just one of his three internationals for West Germany outside a FIFA World Cup. Therefore he was part at the 1958 FIFA World Cup and at the 1962 FIFA World Cup, playing one match on each occasion.[2]

With 1. FC Köln, Sturm also won the West German football championship in 1962.

His son Ralf (born 18 October 1968) was a striker for 1. FC Köln in the Bundesliga himself, netting 28 goals in 121 games as a striker in between 1988 and 1994.
