Lars Schlichting (born September 14, 1982 in Lübeck, Germany) is a retired German football midfielder of Greek descent.


Schlichting began his career in the youth teams of his local club VfB Lübeck, before being acquired by Hamburg in 1998 and featuring for their U-19 squad. He then moved to Hamburg-based club Eichholzer SV, playing in the Oberliga Hamburg for three years before moving to Crete, Greece in 2002 to play for local club AO Tymbaki. His breakthrough came in June 2004, when he was acquired by fellow Cretan Alpha Ethniki (the top tier of the Greek football league system) newcomers Ergotelis.[1] He made a total of 10 appearances in the 2004−05 season in both the Alpha Ethniki and Greek Football Cup, as the club was relegated to the Beta Ethniki at the end of the season. As Cypriot First Division club Ethnikos Achna showed interest in acquiring the player, Schlichting's contract with Ergotelis was renewed for another year in the summer of 2005, leading to a transfer move by the Cypriot club in August 2005 for a reported 50K Euros.[2] Schlichting stayed at Ethnikos Achna for 7 years, playing his first European games during the 2006–07 UEFA Cup and 2008 UEFA Intertoto Cup. He was released from the club in 2012, when he decided to take a temporary break in his career and return to Germany. He signed his final contract with SpVgg 05 Oberrad in 2013 and decided to retire from professional football in 2015.

He now works as a personal trainer in Frankfurt, Germany.[3]
