George William Stacey (April 1887 unknown) was an English footballer who played at left back for several English football clubs, including Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley and Manchester United, with whom he won two First Division titles and one FA Cup.

Born in Thorpe Hesley, Rotherham, Stacey began his career with Thorpe Hesley F.C. before signing for Sheffield Wednesday in May 1902. He then joined Barnsley in August 1905, via a short spell with Thornhill United. In April 1907, he was sold to Manchester United for a fee of £200.

Stacey made his Manchester United debut on 12 October 1907, playing at left back in a 6 1 away win over Newcastle United. That season, he made 18 league appearances and scored one goal as United won the First Division title by nine points over Aston Villa. The following year, Stacey played more regularly at right back, playing in 38 matches on the way to the 1909 FA Cup title. In 1910 11, United won the First Division again, albeit only by one point, with Stacey missing only two matches.

As a result of his consistency with Manchester United, Stacey went for a trial with the English national team in 1912. However, he never made an appearance for the team.

Stacey remained with Manchester United until the outbreak of the First World War forced the temporary cancellation of competitive football in England. During the war, Stacey made guest appearances for his hometown club, Rotherham County. He retired from football at the end of the 1918 19 War League season in May 1919.
