Jeffrey "Jeff" Hopkins (born 14 April 1964) is a former Wales international football defender, who most notably played club football for Fulham and Reading in the Football League.

Hopkins started his career as a trainee with Fulham, going on to make over 200 first team appearances for the club. This was followed by a four year spell at Crystal Palace, including a loan to Plymouth Argyle in 1991 92. He spent a few months at Bristol Rovers in 1992, before spending the remaining five years of his Football League career with Reading.

While at Reading, he was part of the team that narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League in the 1994-95 season, losing 4-3 after extra time in the playoff final against Bolton Wanderers.

After a move to Malaysian football with Selangor where he was made captain, Hopkins moved to Australia in October 1999 as a player-coach with Gippsland Falcons in the National Soccer League.
