Georg Stollenwerk (19 December 1930 – 30 April 2014) was a German footballer and trainer.
Stollenwerk began his international career in 1951 playing as an inside right linkman. He proved to be a versatile player, being used in every position, including goalkeeper. During the 1958 FIFA World Cup, Stollenwerk was chosen to replace Fritz Herkenrath in the goal in case he got injured (with no substitutions being allowed). His main position, however, was that of an inside forward. This changed in 1957, when 1. FC Köln coach Hennes Weisweiler converted Stollenwerk to right back. This proved to be a good career move for him, as he felt at home in that role immediately and played convincingly enough to be called up again for international duty by Sepp Herberger. Previously, as an inside forward, he was only sporadically used by Herberger; however, at the right back position Herberger was looking for a fitting successor to Jupp Posipal, who had quit his international career in 1956. By 1958, Stollenwerk had become the standard right back of West Germany, allowing Herbert Erhardt to play as center half instead of full back. Stollenwerk played in every German game at the 1958 FIFA World Cup and won 23 caps in total.
