Keith Bromage (born 8 November 1937) is a former Australian rules footballer. He played with Collingwood and Fitzroy in his Victorian Football League (VFL) career.

When he debuted against Richmond in 1953 at 15 years of age and 287 days, he was thought to be the youngest debutant in the history of the game. [2] However, in 2012 it was discovered that Claude Clough was aged 15 years and 209 days when he made his debut for St Kilda in May 1900. [3]

From 1962 to 1965 he was captain-coach of Manuka Football Club in Canberra. [4]

In 1968, while playing for Dimboola, he was the leading goal-kicker for the Wimmera Football League.
