Michael Julius Gravgaard (born 3 April 1978) is a Danish former football player, who effectively ended his playing career at FC Nantes in May 2010. Despite the fact of having a contract with FC Nantes until July 2011, his club was not interested to honour the contract, and opted instead in May 2010, to try and file him as "lifetime injured" towards their insurance company. When this attempt ultimately got unapproved by the French authorities, and Gravgaard had passed all additional health checks, the club then opted in January 2011, to dismiss him permanently from the club a half year prematurely. Forced by that, Gravgaard announced in January 2011, that he would now end his active playing career for good, and that he would continue at least for the next half year to work as a football commentator, pundit and analyst, at the Danish TV channel Canal 9.

During his active career, he always played the position as centre back. Except for some of the matches played during his stay at Viborg FF, where he also occasionally played as a striker. His international career took place from August 2005 until September 2007, where he played 18 matches and scored five goals for the Danish national team.
