Georgios Georgiadis (Greek: Γιώργος Χ. Γεωργιάδης) is a former Greek football (soccer) player who last played for PAOK Thessaloniki FC. Born in Kavala, Greece, on March 8, 1972, his family, soon after his birth, left for Stuttgart, Germany, where young Giorgos first learned to play football. He returned to Greece, as a teenager and signed up for amateur side Keravnos Krinides. Soon he was discovered by Alpha Ethniki club Doxa Drama who signed him at age 17.

He transferred to powerhouse Panathinaikos and played for the Athens greens from the 1993 until the 1998 season. He was member of the squad who reached the Champions League semi finals in 1995-96. His exposure to European football brought an offer from English Premiership side, Newcastle United, for 420,000 and Georgiadis joined fellow Greek Nikos Dabizas at Saint James Park in the 1999 season. During that year, Newcastle United made it to the FA Cup Final but lost out to Manchester United.

Georgiadis returned to Greece to play for PAOK Thessaloniki FC from 2000 until 2003 before transferring to Olympiakos.

Georgiadis was also a member of the Greece squad that won Euro 2004.

He was released by Olympiakos after the 2005 season and was signed up by Iraklis Thessaloniki. After one and a half season with Iraklis, Georgiadis left the club as a free transfer to PAOK FC in January 2007.

So far, he has been capped 61 times and has scored 11 goals for Greece. He won two Greek First Division with Panathinaikos (1995, 1996), Olympiakos (2005) and two Greek Cups with PAOK (2001, 2003).

His cousin James, an Australian resident, is currently the assistant coach of the under 18 Sutherland Sharks football club.

He retired in the 2007-2008 season with PAOK. On the 5th of May it was announced that Georgiadis was appointed as a scout at his former club.
