Western Bulldogs

Western Bulldogs Logo & Guernsey AFL

The Footscray Football Club, now known as the Western Bulldogs, was founded in 1877 in the inner-western suburb of Melbourne, Footscray. The club’s headquarters have always been based at Whitten Oval which is affectionately known by locals a ‘the kennel’. They now play many home games at Etihad Stadium in the Docklands of Melbourne.

The Bulldogs have made it to the finals on many occasions, in 1992 finishing second on the ladder. In other years in 1994 and 1995 they made it to the finals again but were defeated by Melbourne and Geelong respectively. Despite injuries along the way in the following years, the Bulldogs made it to the finals again in 2006, the first time since 2000. The Bulldogs became known for making it to the top four on the ladder but not going any further, which happened again in 2008 and 2009. Finally in the 2016 the Bulldogs took out the flag, to end a 62 year premiership drought. Despite many injuries and finishing 7th on the ladder, the Bulldogs beat the odds to win the flag, in true underdog style.
