Panagiotis Kyprianidis (nicknamed "Kapran") was a Greek football midfielder in the 1950s - 1960s.

Kyprianidis was born in 1938. He started his career at Apollon Kalamaria but his fine play soon earned him a transfer to Olympiakos for the record-breaking - at that time - sum of 1 million drachmas.

Despite a decent start, Kyprianidis did not manage to fit in at Olympiakos and his transfer came to be considered by fans of the Piraeus club as a big waste of money.

Kyprianidis was capped once in his career by the National Football Team of Greece in a 1963 friendly against Poland (0-4) - the first Kalamaria player to be so honoured.

He died on April 29, 2019, at the age of 81.
