The 2000 Football Tasmania SWL premiership season was an Australian rules football competition, staged across Tasmania, Australia over seventeen (17) roster rounds and four (4) finals series matches between 24 March and 9 September 2000.
This was the fifteenth and final season of statewide football and was the third separate statewide competition in three years after the TSFL was abandoned in favour of starting up a new statewide league known simply as the SWL which detailed six clubs from the six highest populated cities across Tasmania.
The SWL was sponsored to the tune of A$750,000 under a funding agreement with the Australian Football League which was overseen and managed by the sport's governing body in the state (Football Tasmania) to control.

Shortly after the season had been completed, Burnie Dockers announced that they would be leaving the competition to rejoin the NTFL in 2001, a short time later both Northern Bombers and Devonport followed suit leaving an unsustainable three club statewide competition, with Football Tasmania also under considerable pressure from both the Hobart City Council over possible legal action against them for breaking a contract by moving the Grand Final away from North Hobart Oval to York Park this season and looming legal threats by the remaining SWL clubs over a restraint of trade, the statewide competition was abandoned by Football Tasmania in January 2001, the remaining clubs resumed playing league matches in their regional areas in both the SFL and the NTFL until the end of the 2008 season.
