Mark McVeigh (born 26 January 1981) is an Australian rules footballer. He made his debut for Essendon Football Club in 1999 after representing NSW/ACT at Under 18 level. He is also the older brother of Jarrad McVeigh who plays for the Sydney Swans.
After having a slow start with a season high of 15 Disposals and 4 Marks, in his second season he suffered an injury and missed most of Essendons games. In McVeigh's third season however, it was clear that the game had grown on him as he stood up as an up and coming youngster. After playing 23 games in his third year of playing including the Grand Final against the Brisbane Lions in which Essendon lost, McVeigh had some promising stats with a consistent 11 – 18 in over half of every game he played. McVeigh also went on to play the next 3 seasons in stellar form with Essendon who reached 3 consecutive Semi-Finals in which McVeigh played in all.
In the next three seasons McVeigh was a stand out performer for Essendon, with a high disposal & efficiency rate he was one of the clubs main contributors and eventually was to become apart of the Leadership group and a role model to his younger rookies. With disposals in the high 20's and a career high of 36 disposals, McVeigh was determined to get Essendon back on track. In 2008 McVeigh suffered an injury which sidelined him for almost half the season, nevertheless he claimed 13 Brownlow votes to his name in only 14 games, no doubt he would have finished in the top 10 if he had not suffered an injury. McVeigh still finished in the top 20. By the end of the 2011 season, McVeigh had racked up 229 games and 106 goals for the Bombers.
