Matthew Rogers is a former Australian rules football player who played in the AFL from 1994 to 2004 for the Richmond Football Club.

Rogers was drafted in the 1992 AFL Draft, at no. 37 pick (Richmond's fourth). He didn't play his first league game until 1994, playing mainly on the wing and half-forward line kicking 26 goals in that season. His best goal-scoring season was 2000 when he kicked 37 goals and led the club in goalkicking, during the absence of Matthew Richardson due to injury in that year.[1]

During 2009, Rogers was a member of the Oakleigh In Sports indoor soccer team "Catanzaro Cannons" and scored a hat-trick in the final.

In 2014, Rogers was runner up in the Casa Mia Cup golf tournament held annually in rural Victoria.

He is also a proud member of the Hour of Power club which meets regularly in the Melbourne suburb of Fairfield.

In 2017 Rogers became chief scout for CMC Racing's Thoroughbred Syndication. Together they acquired a minority stake in Minyinga which broke through for its maiden win at Geelong on 8-Sep-17, paying $41-1.
