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 lead the club in goalkicking, during the absence of Matthew Richardson due to injury in that year.

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

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