Vladimir Durković (Serbian: Владимир Дурковић) (6 November 1937 – 22 June 1972) was a Serbian football defender who was very successful in both clubs and Yugoslav national team.

Capped 50 times by Yugoslavia between 1959 and 1966, Vladimir Durković excelled as a 22-year-old at the first UEFA European Championship, offering defensive solidity and attacking penetration at right-back. Although Yugoslavia finished second in France, Durković won a gold medal at the Rome Olympics the following September. He also wore the No2 shirt at the 1962 FIFA World Cup in Chile and was an ever-present as Yugoslavia eliminated former winners Uruguay and West Germany and finished fourth. Durković played with FK Crvena Zvezda until he was 28 at which point he moved abroad and made a name for himself with AS Saint-Etienne, winning three French League titles and the Coupe de France twice. He died when mistakenly shot by a policeman in Sion, Switzerland in June 1972 at the age of 34.
