Ante Žanetić (18 November 1936 – 18 December 2014) was a Croatian footballer.

During his club career he played for NK Hajduk Split, Club Brugge K.V. and Racing White. He earned 15 caps for the Yugoslavia national football team, and participated in the 1960 European Nations' Cup and on the Yugoslavian team that won the 1960 Olympics. He also played a friendly match for the SR Croatian national team against Indonesia.

Žanetić left communist-run Yugoslavia for political reasons.[1] He abandoned the Hajduk Split squad while the team was in Germany in 1961 and moved to Belgium where he played for Club Brugge K.V. and Racing White.[2] He subsequently emigrated to Australia. He died there in 2014.[3]
