Akmal Kholmatov (born 4 April 1976) is a Tajikistani footballer who plays for Shurtan Guzar.
Kholmatov played for Regar-TadAZ between 1993 and 1996. During 1996 Kholmatov moved to Uzbekistan, signing for Neftchi Fargʻona, and becoming an Uzbek citizen in 2001. After 12 years at Neftchi Fargʻona, Kholmatov moved to fellow Uzbek club Pakhtakor Tashkent for three seasons, before joining Iranian side PAS Hamedan in 2011. A year later Kholmatov returned to Uzbekistan with Lokomotiv Tashkent before rejoining Neftchi Fargʻona in 2014. Kholmatov left Neftchi Fargʻona at the end of the 2015 season. After leaving Neftchi Fargʻona, Kholmatov featured for FC Istiklol in the pre-season friendlies, scoring in a 3-1 defeat to Várda SE in February 2016. In June 2016, Kholmatov left FC Istiklol returning to Neftchi Fargʻona.
Kholmatov came under scrutiny in 2007, when the Asian Football Confederation launched an investigation into the identities of two Central Asian players who they believed had falsified documentation to play in AFC competitions. The investigation showed that the two players registered "Akmal Kholmatov" and "Akhmal Holmatov" were actually the same person.
Kholmatov played for Tajikistan between 2003 and 2007, taking part in their 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign.
