Viktor Petrovich Serebryanikov (Russian: Виктор Петрович Серебряников; Ukrainian: Віктор Петрович Серебряников, 29 March 1940 – 12 November 2014) was a Soviet association football player from Ukraine (at that time Ukrainian SSR). Serebrianikov was a member of the Dynamo's squad that for the first time won the Soviet championship title in 1961 becoming the first non-Moscow team to achieve that feat, so called "the first height".[2]

In 1960s, Serebrianikov became admired in the Soviet football for his "ball's arc" (Russian: дуга Серебряникова) when the football after being hit was spinning in two planes.[2][3][1] Later in interview he explained that the trick he picked in Brazil when the Soviet team was on tour.

After retiring from his playing career, Serebryanikov became the first head coach of Nyva Ternopil that started out from the collective farm "Path to the Communism" in the city of Pidhaitsi, Berezhany Raion in Ternopil Oblast in 1978.

He is considered as the first who received the Ukrainian Footballer of the Year award.[4]
