Matthew Lokan (born 20 November 1982) is an Australian rules footballer who has played for Collingwood Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL) and Port Adelaide Magpies in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL).

Lokan played as a forward pocket for the Port Adelaide Magpies in the SANFL and was drafted by Collingwood aged 20 in the 2002 AFL Draft with pick 70.

Collingwood moved Lokan to a half-back flank and he made his senior AFL debut in round 1, 2003, playing all matches that season, including the Grand Final against the Brisbane Lions. In 2004 he played every game up until round 13 before being omitted. He came back for five more games that year before once again being omitted. Over the year he had gone to his natural role as a forward pocket. In 2005 he played only three games before being delisted at the end of the year. In total, Lokan played 46 matches in three seasons, averaging 7.8 disposals per game.

In 2006 Lokan played for Port Adelaide Magpies, his original club.

In 2012, he was the playing coach of the Belconnen Magpies in the North East Australian Football League (NEAFL).[1]

On 22 January 2015, Lokan was announced as the new coach of SANFL side Glenelg.
