Geoffrey Claeys (born 5 October 1974 in Brugge, Belgium) is a football player who last played for Melbourne Victory in the A-League as a central Defender.

Claeys is a former Belgian international and was capped 10 times. He began his career at the Belgian club Cercle Brugge. He left the club in 1996 for Dutch Feyenoord, then he made an unsuccessful move to R.S.C. Anderlecht and was transferred to K.S.C. Eendracht Aalst on loan. He later played for Lierse and Royal Excelsior Mouscron, before moving to Melbourne Victory in 2005. Although he enjoyed a solid season in the Victory defence, he rarely figured in the 06-07 season.

On the 21st of November 2006, Geoffrey Claeys retired from football. However, in 2007, he went to play for Torhout 1992 KM, in the Belgian Third Division. He retired soon after, however.

In 2009, he picked up football again, after his brother asked him to become his team mate at FC Veldegem. Veldegem plays in the provincial leagues of West Flanders.
