Western Bulldogs Header Branding


More than a football club - the Western Bulldogs are active citizens in the community. The Club’s approach to Ballarat and Western Victoria is no different.

While there is much more to do - The Bulldogs have undertaken a range of activities to start to build an ongoing relationship with the people of Ballarat and Western Victoria.

In early March, players will visit local schools, football clubs and community groups in Ballarat as part of a two day Community Camp. The Camp will be followed by the Western Bulldogs v Hawthorn JLT Community Series Preseason competition at Mars Stadium on the 3 March. 

Throughout the year the Club will continue to host a range of footy and training sessions in Ballarat including clinics for school children and Auskick clinics for junior footy fans.

The Bulldogs have also reached out to local business through one on one meetings and local events.

The Club now has a permanent presence in Ballarat to support the delivery of community and school programs and the commitment to play two games at an AFL standard at Mars Stadium. The Bulldogs Shop is located at 214 Mair Street, Ballarat Central and open from 10:00am – 4:00pm with membership and merchandise available for purchase. 

The Club looks forward to continuing to work with partners to grow the Bulldogs community to include Ballarat and Western Victoria.
