Victoria University 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 Footscray Bulldogs play nine home games at the Whitten Oval in 2016.

Complete details of the Footscray Bulldogs VFL fixture, can be found here.

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.
