Giorgos Rokidis was a Greek football forward/midfielder of the 1960s - early 1970s era.

Rokidis started his career at Aegaleo where he became a regular at an early age. He played for the Greek under-21 side and soon became a target for the bigger clubs of Athens. He transferred to Panathinaikos in the summer of 1964 and played for the greens until 1972 when he joined Iraklis Thessaloniki. His career ended rather abruptly as he was accused of taking bribes to throw games. He was eventually acquitted.

After his playing days were over, Rokidis coached several clubs in Corfu including Kerkyra FC.
