Media Release – Hobart Football Club’s vision to restore the roar in ’24 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Hobart Football Club’s vision to restore the roar in ’24 

HOBART, November 2, 2023 —  

The Hobart Football Club outlines its plans to return to the Southern Football League Seniors and Reserves competitions for Season 2024, as it celebrates the club’s 80th anniversary. 

Today on 2 November 2023, the Hobart Football Club is proud to unveil improvements to its TCA Ground Clubrooms, “The Den”. The improvements were made possible through collaborative partnerships with Choices Flooring Hobart and the City of Hobart. See photos of the improvements here.

The improvements are a small part of the club’s new strategic plan 2024-2027 which outlines key aims under the pillars of culture, facilities, junior pathways and volunteers. Improvements to club culture, facilities, the return of a senior womens team for 2025, and growing junior participant numbers are all key objectives of the plan.  

Club President Josh Munting outlined the club’s vision which he said was about rebuilding the club’s positive image in the community with the objective “to be a highly regarded and professional club, cultivating a strong culture centred around family, friendships, and positive work-life balance”. 

The HFC has recently appointed Director of Coaching Aaron Vince, with the search for the club’s next Senior Coach underway. Aaron is a credentialed coach, with experience as Kingborough Tigers TSL Coach and at the North Hobart FC. 

The club has in excess of 40 players, and is optimistic that it will attract the right Senior Coach and supporting staff to build on the club’s rich history, to demonstrate and foster our club values (Unity, Development, Integrity, Community, Passion and Fun) in the Southern Football League Competition for 2024 and beyond. 

Interested applicants should contact Aaron Vince – 0439 601 976 or email admin@hobartfc.com.au

60 Years On – Hobart Forever

60 years later, last week saw the club celebrating its 1963 Premiership with ten players in attendance, two apologies for our reunion at the Black Buffalo hotel. Sadly a further eight of the 20 are no longer with us, and we missed each of your presence.

Remarkably the club won three flags in five years, and five in a decade 🏆

Thanks to all of you for your continued support of our Proud Football Club and for starting the Great Tradition at the HFC.

ANSWERING THE CALL

Recently, the Hobart Football Club was in crisis due to lack of players. The Club made a public plea to arms, with many new and previous players answering the call, including coach Will Perry & assistant coach Darryn Perry. Quickly playing numbers swelled to 40+, and the Club had to make the tough decision to field a Reserves side only, a decision widely supported by players & supporters alike.

The “vibe” around the Club is now bubbling.

Our loyal sponsors also answered the call. Respecting the Club’s decision for a Reserves only side for 2023, our loyal sponsors are once again supporting our Club. The HFC greatly appreciates the valuable financial support by our sponsors, without who’s backing the Club would not survive. Behind our major sponsors our caring people, and it is time for players and supporters of the HFC to give back to these people and their businesses. The Club strongly urges all of you to support our sponsors when next buying a car, getting a takeaway meal, building a house/office, getting legal advice, going to the doctor/chemist, selecting a bottle-shop/counter meal, or buying fresh apple cider online or at pubs & clubs.

The Time is Now – Game on at Tigerland

Following the Hobart Football Club’s Call to Arms the club has been buoyed by the level of support the club has received from its community over recent days.

HFC President Josh Munting urged those considering playing Football in 2023 that the time is now, “if you want to play footy and support a proud club to continue, we need you on the training track tomorrow (Wednesday night), 6pm at the TCA Ground”.

Training last night saw AFL Legends Mathew Armstrong and Jay Schulz supporting Club Coach Dylan Huxley in running training.

Pleasingly the club had seven new players at training commit last night and saw over 20 players on the track, following training returning to the TCA Ground.

Munting said of training last night “the feel was fantastic with a number of returning players, as well as a number of new players who are willing to step up and support our club.”

The club is still actively looking to attract new or returning players from the Greater Hobart area to support our club’s rich history.

The Club will provide an indication to the SFL Executive later in the week with Munting optimistic the club would be in a position to field a stand-alone Reserves side, similar to the position taken by the Brighton Football Club in 2019.

The HFC will establish a sub-committee to plan for Season 2024, with the club looking to attract quality Hobart people to rebuild its senior program.

HFC President Josh Munting said “it was fantastic that the players responded to the call out today and that the club has some quality individuals who are prepared to step up and support the rich history of their club”.

Training next week will shift to Tuesday and Thursdays, 6pm at the TCA Ground.
