AFL football in Tasmania has seen continued change over recent years and the 2018 season was no different with a nine team competition in Seniors and Reserves and eight clubs fielding teams in the U/18 competition. The SFL was seen by the end of this season as the premier community based AFL football league in Tasmania.
The League continues to grow in professionalism of football operations and maintains a desire to provide a solid pathway for individuals who wish to support and play AFL within their own communities.
The SFL has developed strong community support and is now seen as a quality football league, which contributes significantly to the ongoing development of those people involved in the southern football community.
