Victory lend name to Tassie soccer league

They might have lost Harry Kewell, but A-League club Melbourne Victory have gained Tasmania as compensation.

A new Tasmanian state-wide soccer competition kicking off next year will be known as the Victory League after the Melbourne club agreed to be its naming rights sponsor.

The deal is part of a three-year partnership with Football Federation Tasmania which will also mean the Victory undertake an annual pre-season tour and talented young Tasmanian players feed into the club's youth system.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to grow, not only the game itself, but also the Victory brand in a rapidly-developing sporting landscape," Melbourne managing director Richard Wilson said in a statement.

Melbourne already play an A-League match in Launceston each season and will meet Central Coast at Aurora Stadium on January 12.

They will play trials against a Tasmanian XI in Hobart on August 21 and against Adelaide United in Launceston on August 24.
