  • The Footscray Football Club, currently known as the Western Bulldogs, is an Australian rules football club that plays in the Australian Football League. Founded in 1877, the club won nine premierships in the Victorian Football Association between 1898 and 1924, and has won one premiership in 1954 since joining the Victorian Football League, the predecessor to the AFL, in 1925. The Western Bulldogs home guernsey features two thick horizontal "hoops"—one red and one white—on a royal blue background. The club's traditional rivals include St Kilda and geographical rivals Essendon. The club has its headquarters and practices at the Whitten Oval in Footscray, an inner-western suburb of Melbourne, Australia. The club draws its supporter base from this traditionally working class area and plays its home matches at Docklands Stadium in the Melbourne Docklands area, also in the city's inner-west. In October 1996, the Club began to play under its current name of the "Western Bulldogs", changing from its original name of the "Footscray Football Club". The Whitten Oval underwent a A$20 million redevelopment starting in 2005 to improve the Club's headquarters and training facilities. Wikipedia
