Alfred Bickel, also referred to as Fredy Bickel (May 12, 1918 in Eppsteinmarker, Germanymarker — August 18, 1999) was a Swissmarker football player and coach. He played as a forward for local club Grasshopper-Club Zürich and the Switzerland national team, participating with the latter in the World Cup finals of 1938 and 1950.

He played 405 matches and scored 202 goals in the Swiss first division from 1935 to 1956, a period during which he won 7 league titles and 9 cup titles with Grasshopper.

He was a member of the Swiss national team from 1936 to 1954, earning 71 caps and scoring 15 goals, including one in their first-round victory over Nazi Germany in the 1938 World Cup.
