A landmark year awaits the Bombers in 2022 as the club honours its 150-year anniversary.

Established in 1872, the Essendon Football Club's proud journey has included 16 VFL/AFL premierships (plus four in the VFA) to make it one of the most successful and revered clubs in Australian Football and Australian sporting history.

Through the dizzying highs and the tragic lows, millions of supporters have revolved their lives around the mighty Bombers to make up the fabric of our great club.

Learn more below about how this significant milestone will be brought to life for the club's past players, current players, members and supporters.

This year is unique in sporting clubs. One hundred and fifty years - that’s a longer existence than Manchester United and the New York Yankees.
