Western Bulldogs members and fans are invited to rally together at VU Whitten Oval on Friday 23 February, as we launch the 2024 AFL Season.

Be there in person as we present our 2024 playing group with their jumpers, and hear from coaches, leadership personnel and players as we build excitement for the season ahead.

It’s a free, family-friendly event with plenty on offer to keep you entertained – including a special snap and sign session with the entire team, the Footscray-Yarraville Band, food trucks and our fan zone packed full of footy activities and giveaways for kids.

We’ll also have special offers on Bulldogs memberships and merchandise to ensure that you’re ready for the upcoming season. 

The 2024 Season Launch will occur after the scheduled practice matches for both the AFL (11am start) and VFL teams (1:50pm start).
