Gérson Fraga Vieira (born 4 October 1992), sometimes known as just Gerson, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Tanzanian Premier League club Simba S.C. as a centre back.
Born in Porto Alegre, Gérson Vieira joined the youth academy of Grêmio at the age of eight. On 17 January 2012, he was loaned out to Oeste for the Paulista championship. On 8 January 2013, during the preseason, he was promoted to the senior team. However, he failed to make a significant impact in the first team and soon speculation arose in the media of him joining French second-tier club Angers on a loan deal.
On 13 December 2013, Gérson Vieira was loaned out to Red Bull Brasil, for the 2014 Paulista A2. On 20 April, he scored his first goal for the club in a 3–2 victory against Rio Branco. On 28 July 2014, he moved abroad and joined Uruguyan club Atenas on a loan deal. Gerson joined Red Bull Brasil, again on loan on 10 July 2015.
Gérson Vieira switched clubs and countries and joined Indian Super League franchise Mumbai City on 28 June 2016. He went on to score for the franchise in a 3–2 semifinal defeat against ATK. After the season ended, he returned to his native country and joined Atlético Tubarão in January 2017. On 28 July, Mumbai City announced that they had retained Gerson for the 2017–18 season. He captained the team five times during the season, with manager Alexandre Guimarães describing him as a key player during the two seasons. After the season ended, he terminated his contract with the club and moved to Japanese second-tier club Renofa Yamaguchi on 20 March 2018.
On 30 July 2018, Gérson Vieira returned to India and joined ATK. On 10 November he scored his first goal for ATK from a header in the 82 minute of the match as ATK won against FC Pune City by 1–0. On 25 June 2019 he joined Simba Sports Club which plays in Tanzania premier league as well as CAF Champions League
