NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

The Whitten Oval, formally known as the Western Oval, is located Footscray in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne. It is no longer used as a official AFL venue. The Whitten Oval in its glory days was home to the Western Bulldogs (Footscray) Football Club who still use the ground today as their training and administration base. It was also the home of the Fitzroy Football Club for a number of years. In total, the ground hosted 880 AFL/VFL matches including two finals. During its AFL days, the Whitten Oval held around 25,000 but has since been redeveloped with capacity now estimated at around 15,000.
