Be a part of the historic occasion, with free tickets to see the Bulldogs celebrate 30 years of Fightback when they take on Melbourne Demons at Marvel Stadium.

VU staff and students can receive free match tickets and a free Western Bulldogs Beanie.

History – Bulldogs fight to survive

In 1989 it was crippling debt that left the club with two options – merge or become extinct.

For some there was no denying the inevitable, but for the few who weren’t willing to give up their club, what happened is the stuff of legend.

It was the power of the people, rising up together to save what meant everything to them.

Free tickets to commemoration game

Three decades on, the Western Bulldogs will commemorate the most significant period in its history - a moment in time which paved the way for the red, white and blue today.

The Footscray VFL team will also play as the curtain raiser to the AFL at Marvel Stadium from 11.50am.

Join us as we celebrate the occasion – with a VU staff and student exclusive offer.

Register to receive two free tickets and you can collect a Western Bulldogs beanie free when you attend.
