The Huonville Football Club, nicknamed The Lions, is an Australian rules football club currently playing in the Southern Football League in Tasmania, Australia.

History[edit]

The Huonville Lions Football Club was formed as a result of a merger between former Huon Football Association clubs Huonville Bulldogs (1887-1997) and the Franklin Lions (1887-1997) at the end of the 1997 season after the Huon Football Association's demise. The Lions then joined the Southern Football League in 1998.
