Amir Abdelhamid (Arabic: أمير عبد الحميد‎‎) (born April 24, 1979) is an Egyptian footballer. He plays the Goalkeeper position for the Egyptian club Wadi Dela FC. He started his career in El-Ahly and became his first goalkeeper after Essam El-Hadary escaped to FC Sion on 21 February 2008. He proved excellence in the games he played. Thus, Egyptian commentators asks him to wait for his chance, as they see that he will be the Egyptian national goalkeeper. Amir was once considered the third goalkeeper for the national team.

Amir played 10 minutes with Al-Ahly against Internacional of Brazil in the semi-final of FIFA Club World Cup 2006, and the whole 3rd place match versus Club América of Mexico.[1]

On May 15, 2008, Amir has been chosen for the first time in the Egypt squad for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
