Luigi Allemandi (November 8, 1903[1] – September 25, 1978) was an Italian footballer who played as a defender. Born in San Damiano Macra, province of Cuneo, he debuted in 1921 with A.C. Legnano. Later he played with Juventus FC, F.C. Internazionale Milano, A.S. Roma, S.S.C. Venezia and S.S. Lazio. He was a member of the Italian national team which won the 1934 World Cup. He died in Pietra Ligure, Province of Savona.

After debuting for the national team in 1925 he eventually won the left back position from Caligaris before their 1934 World Cup qualifying match against Greece. Vittorio Pozzo started him in every match, which he repaid by helping win the title. However the part of his career that stands out is the corruption scandal in the Torino-Juventus derby in 1927 that resulted in Torino being stripped of their title. A manager from Torino offered Allemandi 50,000 lira to throw the game, 25,000 now and the rest after the match. Torino won the match 2–1 but Allemandi played to his best. When he went to collect the rest of the money he was refused. The confrontation was overheard by a journalist from the 'Tifone' newspaper who then went public with the information. Along with Torino's title revocation, Allemandi was banned for life. He was later pardoned by Umberto of Savoy in 1928 and joined Ambrosiana-Inter. Allemandi was ahead of his time as a defender. He was a lateral defender that would push forward on attack along the wings. He had springlike reflexes, precise passing and an inexhaustible pair of lungs.
