Tasmanian State League logoAbout
The Tasmanian State League (TSL), also known as the Tasmanian Football League (TFL) (formerly known as the Tasmanian Australian National Football League (TANFL) and several other short-term names) is the highest ranked Australian rules football league in Tasmania.

The league has a long and convoluted history which dates back to its founding on 12 June 1879 (giving it some claim to the title of the third oldest club football league in the world). The name TFL was removed after it was liquidated with crushing debts in February 1999 and replaced by an independent commission (Football Tasmania).

The competition was renamed the Tasmanian State Football League (1999) and the SWL (2000) until the number of clubs in financial difficulty made the league unsustainable and it collapsed in December 2000. After long negotiations and discussions it was reinstated as a 10 club competition in 2009.
