Mário Jorge da Silva Pinto Fernandes (born 24 July 1961 in Ponta Delgada, Azores), known as Mário Jorge, is a retired Portuguese footballer who played as a midfielder.
Jorge made his professional debuts at Sporting Clube de Portugal at the age of 18, playing one match in the 1979–80 season as the Lisbon side won the national championship – he would already be an important first-team member as the team won it again two years later, the last for the following 18 years.
After only 12 matches in 1988–89, Jorge left Sporting and joined fellow top-divisioner S.C. Beira-Mar, but returned to the club at the season's end, again being rarely played. He concluded his career in 1995 after stints with two other clubs from the capital, C.F. Estrela da Amadora and G.D. Estoril Praia, both in the second level (he joined the latter after two years of inactivity).
Jorge gained nine caps for Portugal, seven of those coming after the 1986 World Cup, following the defection of practically all of the national team squad due to the infamous Saltillo Affair.
