Slaven Zambata was a Croatian footballer who competed for Yugoslavia at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Domestically he is best known for his time with Dinamo Zagreb, playing for them from 1959-69 and 1972-73 in 171 First League matches, although he also spent time with Junak Sinj as a youth (1958-59), KSV Waregem in Belgium (1969-71), and ended his career in Germany with WSG Radenthein in 1973. Zambata won four Yugoslav Cups with Dinamo (1960, 1963, 1965, 1969), and helped them win the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1966/67.

Zambata played on the Yugoslav national team from 1962-68, scoring 21 goals in 31 matches.
