Michael Georgiou (born 18 January 1988) is an English-Cypriot professional snooker player from Forest Hill. He is a practice partner of Tony Drago, who practises at the Frames Sports Bar in Coulsdon.

Georgiou qualified for the main tour by winning the 2007 IBSF World Under-21 Snooker Championship in India. However it was a season to forget as he failed to win a single match and lost his tour place as a result.

Georgiou spent the next two seasons competing in the PIOS series then decided to give up snooker and started a career in recruitment. He commented: "I was doing a 9-to-5 job, sitting behind a desk. But I always kept an eye on snooker and when I saw how the sport had changed and the opportunities that are there now, I decided to give it another try".Georgiou returned to serious action in 2013 as he entered the Q School, his best run coming at the second event where he defeated Dessie Sheehan and Darren Bond, before losing to eventual qualifier Ahmed Saif. Georgiou continued to enter European Tour events as an amateur during the 2013/14 season, while also participating in the EBSA Qualifying Tour where he reached final of one of the tournaments to qualify for the play-offs. There Georgiou was beaten to the two-year tour card by Zak Surety; however he was more successful in the Q School where, after losing early in Event 1, he went all the way in Event 2 by defeating Adam Wicheard, Gareth Green, Sean O'Sullivan, Jordan Brown and in the final round Ashley Carty to confirm his return to the main tour for the 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 seasons.

Georgiou started his comeback season in the best possible way as he whitewashed Aditya Mehta 5–0 to qualify for the venue stages of the 2014 Wuxi Classic, where he beat Marcus Campbell 5–2, before losing 5–3 to Neil Robertson. Anthony McGill eliminated him 6–4 in the first round of the UK Championship, but Georgiou then overcame 2006 world champion Graeme Dott 5–1 and Andrew Pagett 5–3 in qualifying for the German Masters. He lost 5–3 against Alfie Burden. Georgiou's best form came at the Welsh Open where he defeated Peter Lines 4–1, Lee Walker 4–2 and Dott 4–3 to reach the last 16 of a ranking event for the first time. However, he suffered a 4–2 defeat to four-time world champion John Higgins.
