Butler Bulldogs Football TicketsThe Butler Way demands that athletes be committed, deny selfishness and put their team above themselves. This results in a tough and tight-knit team of athletes who continually dominate their conference. Butler has been in the game since 1887, and its legacy of experience and success shows in the way the team plays on the field. Current head coach Jeff Voris has already led the team to three conference titles. The Bulldogs helped found the Pioneer Football League in 1993, and have claimed four titles in that league to date. One of the most notable Bulldogs is Bill Lynch, who played for the team in the '70s and served as head coach from 1985 to 1989. The Bulldogs don't have a fight song — they have a War Song. When you see fans decked out in blue and white, you know that a serious game is ahead. Catch the next Butler Bulldogs football game when you buy your tickets at StubHub.
Where do the Butler Bulldogs play their home games?The Butler Bulldogs football games are played at the Bud and Jackie Sellick Bowl on the Butler campus.
