Francis Lee (born April 29, 1944 in Westhoughton, England) is a former professional footballer, who played in the 1960s and 1970s, including many appearances for the England national team. Lee played for Bolton Wanderers, Manchester City, and Derby County and has been described as barrel-chested, well built and short-tempered.

Lee went on to run Manchester City in the 1990's after ousting the previous chairman Peter Swales. He hired his good friend Alan Ball and plunged Manchester City into one of their famous yo-yo periods where they managed to go from the top divsion of the football league into the third division and back again in short order. He is known as "The Bog Roll King" due to his toilet roll manufacturing business.
