Michael Mason (born June 28, 1971 in Kassel) is a retired U.S. / German soccer player who spent his career playing in Germany.

Mason was born in Germany, but holds a U.S. passport. He began playing at lower division clubs KSV Baunatal and KSV Hessen Kassel before being picked up by Hamburg in 1994. He played with the reserve team until 1996, when he made the first of a handful of first team appearances.

In 1997, his career hit its high point. He was playing Bundesliga ball at Hamburg which led to U.S. national team Steve Sampson calling him up. That year, he earned 5 caps before his deficiencies became apparent. At that point, his career slowly slid downward. He spent two years at FC St. Pauli, then played briefly with FC Gütersloh, getting picked up by FC Carl Zeiss Jena during the 1999-2000 season.

He last played at a German Regionalliga side, KSV Hessen Kassel, a team he played with as a youth. At his previous team, SV Elversberg, he played for former U.S. national player Brent Goulet who was a long time player and now coach for the team.
