South Fremantle Bulldogs AFL logoAbout
Formed in 1900, the club won their first premiership in 1916 and went back-to-back in 1917, both times defeating their local rivals, East Fremantle in the final and challenge final. After World War II, South experienced their greatest era, with the arrival of future Hall of Fame members Steve Marsh, Bernie Naylor, John Todd and Clive Lewington. Between 1945 and 1956 they would win 6 premierships, be runners-up three times and make the finals in every season.

South Fremantle was the first WAFL club to have won 10 grand finals since World-War II. Four of their 13 premierships were won against the club’s traditional rivals, East Fremantle.

The Fremantle Derby is traditionally one of the biggest game of the year on the WAFL calendar. The Derby still has a great following. The Foundation Day derby on the first Monday in June (a public holiday to mark the Foundation of Western Australia in 1829) is commonly the highest attended game of the home and away season.
