The T-League (known as the Victory League for sponsorship reasons) is an Australian football (soccer) state-wide league competition which is played in Tasmania. The league is a subdivision of the National Premier Leagues and commenced in 2013 with eight teams.[1][2]

Nationally the league sits below the A-League and above the Tasmanian regional championship competitions, although no promotion or relegation exists between any of these leagues. Football Federation Tasmania have expressed an interest in a possible future promotion/relegation between the T-League and regional premierships in a similar manner to the current English Conference National competition with supporters suggesting a simple system of replacing the lowest Northern or Southern based clubs with the winner of the corresponding Northern Championship and Southern Championship.

History[edit]

The league was formed in 2012 by Football Federation Tasmania and the first season commenced in 2013.
