The 2023 Women's Super League was launched at Wrest Point today by Football Tasmania CEO Matt Bulkeley.

The WSL will consist of six teams this season rather than seven.

This means there will not be the necessity for a bye.

The six teams are:  Launceston United, Devonport Strikers, Clarence Zebras, South Hobart, Kingborough Lions United and Taroona.

Meanwhile, the Women's Southern Championship has only four teams, while the Women's Under-18 competition has only three teams.

Surely this is unviable.

We await developments.


Clarence Zebras beat South East United 6-1 in a pre-season friendly at Pembroke Park in Sorell last night.

Xuan Cappellino netted a hat-trick, Dwayne Walsh a brace, and Riley Dillon one goal for Clarence Zebras.

So the Womens statewide comp each jas less skill and players five years ago wouldn't haveseen the pitch.
Now four teams in champs ,an under 18 comp where a club is asking for under 14 players or younger to make up a team.
We have a State coach at skills training trying to recruit to his club.
Would be interesting to see report on State team from nationals,as a friend from another State said no way the tech departament from FA even looked at Tasmanian girls.
Womens game in a world cup year in disarray, yet FT says we have record participation, doesn't look like it in the older age range.

We lose so many great female athletes to AFL because they feel so much more supported there than in FFT structures
