THE Footscray Bulldogs will kick off its 2015 VFL campaign this weekend with a rematch against last year’s grand final opponent the Box Hill Hawks.
The club will unfurl its 2014 VFL premiership flag ahead of the round 1 clash on Saturday, April 18 at Whitten Oval.
Bulldogs president Peter Gordon urged Bulldogs supporters to make it down to the game.
“We don’t unfurl a premiership flag at the Whitten Oval that often,” he said.
He said the day would include a host of children’s activities and was being marketed as a family event.
It will be the first of nine home matches at the ground this season.
The club’s decision to field a stand alone VFL side under the Footscray name for the first time since 1996 has proved a popular one with fans in the west.
