South Hobart Football Club is an Australian semi-professional soccer club based in Hobart, Tasmania. The club was founded in 1910 and competes in the T-League. The club plays home games at South Hobart Ground and also fields teams in all junior divisions, as well as women's teams.

History[edit]

South Hobart is the oldest association football club in Tasmania, as well as one of the most successful. They have won the State Championship a record 17 times. Add to this a remarkable 21 Southern titles, 11 KO Cups, 3 Statewide KO Cups and 6 Falkinder Cups plus various other trophies, and they stand out as Tasmania's most successful club. They played their first match on 21 May 1910. South Hobart won the league for the first time in 1919, and won the next four in a row. Although successful through their existence, they have only recently begun to again win trophies at the highest level. The 60's saw the influx of ethnic based clubs, and South Hobart has taken until the 21st Century to return to their former glory.

South Hobart play their home games at South Hobart Ground, D'Arcy Street, South Hobart. The ground is a picturesque ground at the base of the slopes of Mount Wellington with sweeping views over the city and the River Derwent. The Club's headquarters however and training ground are located nearby at Wellesley Park, Wellesley Street, South Hobart.
