Georgios Galitsios (born June 8, 1986 in Greece, is a Greek football player currently playing for Olympiacos FC in Greece.

He is a right-sided defender who has made a number of appearances for Greece's youth teams. More of an endurance player than a virtuoso, he is distinguished by exceptional leg strength.

He played an important role and became a vital player for AE Larissa during his years with the club, including Larissa's appearances in the UEFA Cup group stages during the 2007-08 season, attracting interest from Greece's bigger teams. He is the son of Giannis Galitsios, who was also a star player for his hometown team, Larissa, in the 1980s. Georgios Gallitsos is a very talented and promising player.

In January 2008 it was confirmed that Galitsios had signed a contract with Olympiacos Piraeus, and joined for the 2008-09 season. He played against a vital Champions League qualifier against Arsenal F.C, but in the 75th minute he suffered a minor injury, which led to him being substituted.

International career

After getting more actions for Olympiacos in the 2009-10 season, Galitsios was called up on 15 November 2009 by Greece national football team coach Otto Rehhagel for the second leg of the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification play-offs against Ukraine.
