Daniel Piorkowski (born 12 January 1984) is an Australian footballer.
His progress as a footballer was delayed by a knee reconstruction, sustained during his playing days with ex NSL club Melbourne Knights. Daniel also was a member of the Australian Under 20 Side and missed out on a place in the Under-20 World Cup due to a knee reconstruction.
After signing for Melbourne Victory, Piorkowski made 11 appearances and was signed to a new two-year deal in April 2006. Piorkowski was an important part of the Victory defence during their premiership winning season in 06/07 along with Adrian Leijer and Rodrigo Vargas.

On 13 February 2008 he was tabled a new contract by Victory but remained undecided whether to stay with the club. On 13 May 2008 he finally decided to pursue his ambitions of playing in Europe.
On 13 September 2008 he signed a short deal after a week-long trial to cover injured defender Shaun Ontong.
