Mark Slater (born 11 July 1951) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Collingwood in the Victorian Football League (VFL).[1]

Aged just 17, Slater made his VFL debut in Collingwood's round 10 win over Geelong at Victoria Park in the 1969 season.[2] His second and final appearance for Collingwood came in the opening round of the 1970 VFL season, against Footscray at Western Oval.[2]

Slater captain-coached Bundoora to the 1981 Diamond Valley Football League Division 2 premiership. He won the Division 2's best and fairest award that year.[3]
