Charles Henry 'Charlie' Pannam (original family surname was Pannamopoulos: 2 October 1874 - 29 October 1952) was a Greek-born Australian rules footballer who played for the Collingwood Football Club in the Victorian Football Association (VFA) between 1894 and 1896 then in the Victorian Football League (VFL) between 1897 and 1906.[1] He then played for the Richmond Football Club in the VFA in 1907 then in the VFL in 1908. He was senior coach of Richmond in 1907 and 1912. It was when he had just immigrated to Australia that he shortened is surname from Pannamopoulos.

A wingman and a rover, he was the first VFL player to reach the 100 game milestone, he was the VFL Leading Goalkicker in 1905, the last Captain and Coach of Richmond in the VFA and that club's first captain in its inaugural VFL season.

In 1996 Pannam was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame.
