Football Federation Tasmania has today revealed the competition structures that will underpin the Victory League in 2013.


 

These structures have been the product of careful consultation between FFT and clubs both inside and outside the Victory League, taking into consideration the National Competition Review.   

The Victory League will be the elite statewide competition involving 8 clubs:

Devonport City, Launceston City, Northern Rangers, Glenorchy Knights, Tilford Zebras, Olympia FC Warriors, South Hobart and Kingborough Lions
