REVIEWS:

“Amazing venue. So family friendly with great baby change rooms and parent rooms. Free popcorn for kids on Saturdays was a great surprise, not sure if this is always but a really cool idea. We took family from overseas and our 6 month old baby and door staff were so helpful with me carrying a baby in. Seats were great. We sat level 1 aisle 46 and it was a great spot. Very helpful staff outside stadium.”                                                                                                – Rebecca S.

Whitten Oval was the Bulldogs’ home for generations and remains the squad’s training base and administrative headquarters.

In 2014, competitive football returned to the Club’s home base with the re-introduction of the Footscray Bulldogs into the Victorian Football League (VFL) competition.

The Western Bulldogs Women’s Team also plays their AFL Women’s home games at the venue.

Formerly known as the Western Oval, the ground was renamed in honour of legendary Bulldogs player and coach Ted Whitten Sr. The Bulldogs played their last home and away match at the ground in round 21, 1997, when they took on West Coast.

Melbourne Cricket Ground

Melbourne Cricket Ground was built way back in 1853 when the then 15-year-old the ground was forced by the government to move from its former site because the route of Australia’s first steam train was to pass through the oval.

Since then the MCG has established a marvellous history that compares favourably with any other in the world, hosting plenty of international cricket including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, and the 1956 Olympic Games.
