Arnold Briedis (born 20 August 1955) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for North Melbourne in the VFL during the 1970s.

A centre half forward, Briedis was a member of North Melbourne's inaugural premiership side in 1975, kicking 5 goals in the grand final. In the 1977 VFL Grand Final, Briedis kicked seven points and his inaccuracy at goal nearly cost North Melbourne the premiership when they drew with Collingwood.[1] However, Briedis became the club's best goalkicker in the decider when he kicked accurately with 5 goals.
