For the third consecutive year, the Western Bulldogs have broken their all-time membership record, reaching 57,151 members in 2024, surpassing last year’s record of 56,302.

The club attributes this achievement to the loyalty of its existing fanbase and the addition of new members, resulting in a seven percent increase from last year. This support was also evident in the 50,144-strong crowd at the Round 5 match against Essendon, the largest AFL crowd at Marvel Stadium in over a decade.

Bulldogs CEO Ameet Bains expressed gratitude for the support. “This is a milestone we’ve reached together with our dedicated Bulldogs family,” Bains said. “Our members are the core of our club, and their support motivates our players and staff every day.”

Club President Kylie Watson-Wheeler emphasized the importance of this achievement and encouraged fans to help reach the next goal of 60,000 members. “Breaking our membership record for a third straight season shows the commitment of our fans,” Watson-Wheeler said. “With the AFL season in full swing, the AFLW campaign beginning, and the redevelopment of Mission Whitten Oval nearing completion, it’s a great time to join and support the Bulldogs.”
