Sergei Nikolayevich Ignashevich (Russian: Сергей Николаевич Игнашевич; born 14 July 1979) is a Russian footballer who plays as a central defender for CSKA Moscow.

He has also played for Lokomotiv Moscow in his career, and has won Russian Premier League titles for both clubs, as well as the 2005 UEFA Cup Final with CSKA. Ignashevich is often considered one of the highest skilled defenders in the Russian Premier League while playing alongside fellow Russian international defenders and twin brothers Aleksei and Vasili Berezutskiy.

He made his international debut for Russia in 2002, and was selected in their squads for two European Championships and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, helping them to the semi-finals of Euro 2008 and earning his 100th cap at the World Cup. On 8 September 2015, he made his 110th international appearance and became the most capped player in Russia's team history, overtaking Viktor Onopko. On 17 November 2015, he made his 114th appearance, making him the most capped Russian player for any national team (again, overtaking Onopko who played 4 additional games for CIS).

On 2 April 2017, he played his 457th game in the Russian Premier League, setting a new record for most games played in the competition and overtaking the previous record holder Sergei Semak. As of 10 December 2017, his record stands at 479 games.
