George Frederick "Ted" Regan (6 June 1915 – 9 July 1943) was an Australian rules footballer who played for Melbourne and Essendon in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Regan, originally from Elsternwick, was a defender during his brief league career. He started out at Melbourne in 1938 but crossed to Essendon the following year. After not playing at all in 1940, he participated in the 1941 VFL Grand Final for Essendon as a reserve but finished on the losing side.

A Flight Sergeant with the RAAF in World War II, Regan was killed when his plane was shot down in a battle over Burma on 9 July 1943.
