Uwe Wassmer (born January 22, 1966 in Wehr, Baden-Württemberg) is a German former footballer who played as a striker during the 1980s and 1990s.

Wassmer began his career in Switzerland with FC Aarau in 1985 and spent three years with the club before joining FC Schalke 04 of Germany. After just one season with Schalke, he returned to Switzerland to play for FC Basel. He spent just one season at Basel, also, and went back to FC Aarau for the second time in his career. In 1993, he signed for SC Freiburg where he went on to play over 100 matches, scoring 30 goals.

On 22 September 1996, while playing for Frieberg, Wassmer set a Bundesliga record in a game against Leverkusen, by scoring just 13 seconds after his introduction, making it the fastest goal ever scored by a substitute.[1]

On July 1, 2003, he became manager of amateur Swiss team Dottingen SV. During the 2003/04 season, his team were ptomoted to the regional league but were relegated after just one season. In August 2008, he was appointed manager of German side SC Riegel.
