Double-headers a highlight

FOOTBALL Federation Tasmania yesterday unveiled its fixture for 2014, which is highlighted by five big double headers scattered across the season, as well as blockbuster clashes on Good Friday and Anzac Day for the first time and the Victory Cup to conclude the season once again.

 Football Federation Tasmania competitions manager George Kalis said the organisation's plan was to further improve upon the successes of the league.

``We have worked with our eight clubs to develop a roster that allows the supporters the opportunity to attend more than one match in a weekend and for games to be played outside of the traditional Saturday afternoons,'' Kalis said.

``Fixturing a game on Good Friday should prove to be a success given the usual inactivity on this date.

``The Glenorchy Knights are working with the RSL to try and make the Anzac Day game with Olympia FC Warriors a traditional calendar feature.''

 The season will  kick off on March 28  with reigning champions South Hobart taking on the Glenorchy Knights under lights at KGV Football Park. 

Launceston City will host Northern Rangers at Mitsubishi Park on March 29 to open their seasons.

The Victory League will again be a part of the national landscape, with Football Federation Australia  expanding the National Premier League setup to include all member federations in 2014 after its introduction in 2013.
