The Tasmanian Greens today confirmed their support the Tasmanian United Football Club’s call for an A-League Tasmanian team.

Greens Leader Nick McKim MP welcomed the TUFC’s work to establish that a State soccer team would be viable, saying that Western Sydney’s successful bid to join the League is encouraging.

“The Greens support the TUFC’s push for a State soccer team in the A-League, and the recent success of Western Sydney in joining the League is very encouraging, and should boost the TUFC’s efforts.”

“I would urge all Tasmanians who appreciate the fine football tradition, previously known as soccer, to get behind the TUFC’s bid,” Mr McKim said.
