Ibrahim Afellay (born 2 April 1986) is a Dutch footballer who plays for FC Barcelona in La Liga as an attacking midfielder or winger.

Afellay appeared at the 2010 World Cup, contributing to the Dutch side's second place in the tournament. He also played Euro 2008 and Euro 2012.

Afellay started to play football at local side VSK, but joined USV Elinkwijk after one season. Afellay left Elinkwijk in 1996 for PSV. In the PSV youth academy, he had to fight against doubts whether he would make the senior team because of his thin and short physique. Nonetheless, Afellay quickly rose through the ranks and neared the first team at the end of 2003

He continued to play 28 Barcelona matches in his first season, of which 18 were as a substitute. Afellay was given his first start on 19 January 2011 against Real Betis in the Copa del Rey. His first goal also occurred in the Copa del Rey against UD Almería in February. Afellay scored his first league goal in a 3–1 away win against Málaga CF on the last day of the season. The 2010–11 season ended in the title win for Barcelona and the fifth league championship for Afellay overall.
