The Western Bulldogs (formerly the Footscray Football Club) are a professional Australian rules football club that competes in the Australian Football League (AFL), the sport's premier competition.
Founded in 1877 in Footscray, an inner-western suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, the club won nine premierships in the Victorian Football Association (VFA) before gaining entry to the Victorian Football League (since renamed the AFL) in 1925. The club has won two VFL/AFL premierships, in 1954 and 2016, and was runner up in 1961.
Much of the club's supporter base comes from Melbourne's traditionally working-class western region. Docklands Stadium in the city's inner-west serves as the club's home ground, while its headquarters and training facilities are located at its original home ground, Footscray's Whitten Oval, nicknamed The Kennel. The Western Bulldogs guernsey features two thick horizontal hoops—one red and one white—on a royal blue background. Fourteen players from the club are members of the Australian Football Hall of Fame, including inaugural inductee and "Legend" Ted Whitten. Marcus Bontempelli and Luke Beveridge serve as the club's current captain and head coach, respectively.
In 1996, as part of a broader rebranding scheme, the club changed its name from the Footscray Football Club to its nickname the Western Bulldogs. The club has fielded a side in AFL Women's since the competition's 2017 inception, and also has reserves sides in the Victorian Football League and VFL Women's League.
