2014 2nd Qualifying Final - Footscray vs Williamstown


Victoria University Whitten Oval will play host to VFL Finals football this Sunday, with the Footscray Bulldogs to face-off with local rivals Williamstown in the second Qualifying Final.

The match will be a ticketed event, with capacity strictly limited at the venue.

Patrons are advised to pre-purchase tickets online and print them at home to avoid queues on the day.

Tickets for adults are $15, concessions $10, with children 12 years of age and under free.

Gates at VU Whitten Oval will open at 9:00am on Sunday morning, with the first bounced scheduled for 1pm.

Footscray finished their season with 14 wins to secure second place on the VFL ladder in their first season as a stand-alone side in the competition.

Williamstown too secured a top-four finish and the double chance, also finishing the season with 14 wins under coach Andy Collins.

Just percentage separated the two western suburbs teams at the end of the home and away season.

Earlier in the year, an inaccurate Footscray had an away loss to the Seagulls at Burbank Oval in round two, 7.15 (57) to 15.8 (98), before going on to win 13 of their next 16 matches.

With history between the two sides dating back to the Bulldogs’ VFA era, the clubs last met in a finals match in the 1924 VFA Grand Final, in which Footscray were 55-point victors, 11.11 (77) to 3.4 (22).

That was the last year in which Footscray competed in the VFA competition, before joining the Victorian Football League (VFL) in 1925 alongside Hawthorn and North Melbourne.
