Georgi Chilikov (Bulgarian: Георги Чиликов; born 23 August 1978 in Burgas) is a former Bulgarian footballer.

He was part of the Bulgarian 2004 European Football Championship team, which exited in the first round, finishing bottom of Group C, having finished top of Qualifying Group 8 in the pre-tournament phase. Chilikov scored his only goal for the national side in the 2:1 home win against Andorra on 16 October 2002 in a Euro 2004 qualifier.


Chilikov was educated in Chernomorets's youth academy. From 1999 to 2001 he played for the other club from BurgasNaftex. His move from Naftex to PFC Levski (Sofia) made him the record holder of the highest transfer between Bulgarian clubs. In June 2001, PFC Levski (Sofia) signed Chilikov to a four-year deal for a record €1.25 million. During his time with the "blues", Chilikov established himself as a dependable goal-scorer. On 24 April 2004, he netted a last-minute goal against archrivals CSKA Sofia in an A PFG match to help his team to a 2:1 away win.[1] On 28 August 2002, Chilikov failed to convert a penalty in the 0:1 loss against Ukrainian side Dynamo Kyiv in a third qualifying round Champions League match.[2] In 2005 he moved to Portugal Nacional Madeira. In June 2007, Chilikov was loaned out to CSKA Sofia for one year and 50 000 euros price. Despite some reservations on the part of the CSKA supporters (due to the time he had spent at Levski Sofia), Chilikov quickly managed to win them over. On 11 August 2007, he netted an equalizing goal in an A PFG match against Litex Lovech.[3] On 30 August 2007, Chilikov scored a last-minute goal against Cypriot side AC Omonia in a UEFA Cup game and helped his team advance to the next stage.[4] However, despite generally impressing in his substitute appearances, Chilikov failed to establish himself as part of the starting 11. In January 2008, he was transferred to Chinese club Dalian Shide. After that he had brief stints with FC Tobol, Chernomorets Burgas and Lokomotiv Plovdiv. From July to September 2010 he served as assistant manager in Neftochimic Burgas. Chilikov was assistant manager in Chernomorets Burgas from June 2011 to May 2014. July 2016 Georgi Chilikov was assigned as coach of PFC Levski (Sofia) U17 youth academy team. From October 2016 he is the Head Scout of PFC Levski (Sofia) and is in charge of the team’s selection.
