The Footscray Football Club currently known as the Western Bulldogs is an Australian Rules Football team that plays in the Australian Football League (AFL). Founded in 1877, the club won nine Victorian Football Association (VFA) premierships before going to the AFL (then known as the VFL) in 1925 and winning seven premierships. The clubs current guernsey is comprised of a blue field, with red and white hoops and a white bulldogs head in the centre.
The team itself has little to no rivalry with other clubs, however, history has noted that the team often comes up close in games with the Saint Kilda Saints.
