You’ll probably recognise Brodie Holland from his illustrious career with Collingwood Football Club. Brodie played 11 seasons for Fremantle Dockers and Collingwood Magpies.
Brodie’s football skills combined with a loveable larrikin personality made him a fan favourite throughout his time with the club, and he’s maintained a loyal following ever since. No stranger to the spotlight, Brodie has also dabbled in modelling, made an appearance on Neighbours and even competed on ‘Dancing With the Stars’.
Brodie was among a batch of experienced bodies recruited by Mick Malthouse to bolster his baby Magpies ahead of the 2001 season, and he made an immediate impression with his goal kicking nous ensuring he held his place in the side for most of the year.
His finest hour on a football field arrived early the following year, when he kicked eight goals against West Coast to single-handedly carry Collingwood across the line by a solitary point in round two, 2002.
Holland’s career came to a close in 2008 when injuries restricted him to just one senior game. His troublesome Achillies hadn’t settled, while a broken wrist in the dying stages of a loss to Werribee in the VFL brought the curtain down on the career of one of the Collingwood faithful’s favourites.
In the years that followed, he went on to become a playing-coach with Maribyrnong Park in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, and he was a regular participant in the E.J. Whitten Legends Match.
On his social media platform, Brodie pulls the curtain back on his family life with wife Sarita Holland and their three adorable children. From family holidays to home renovations and Saturday sport, Brodie shares it all with an endearing honesty and relatability. An authority in the entrepreneur and fitness space, he is incredibly active in coaching, PT and running his own business ventures.
Brodie has worked with a mix of brands including Coles, ShaverShop, Chemist Warehouse, Dan Murphy’s, City of Melbourne, and Bunnings.
