1986 TFL Premiership Season

 
 

The TSL (Tasmanian State League) is Tasmania’s premier Australian Football competition. [Re] established in 2009, after a nine-year hiatus, the TSL is the island’s sole state-wide competition, and is owned and administered by AFL Tasmania in consultation with participating clubs. The League has a long and convoluted history which dates back to its founding on 12 June 1879 (claimed to be the third oldest club football league in Australia), and has operated under various guises, including as the TFA, the STFA, the TFL, and the TANFL, amongst others.
