Some of the highlight fixtures in the Lakoseljac Cup include reigning NPL TAS champions Devonport Strikers travelling away to Launceston City at Buckby Land Rover Park which should be an exciting contest between the two Northern teams.

Reigning Lakoseljac Cup champions South Hobart FC will have to travel north of the state to play Launceston United at Birch Avenue.

Semi-finalists in the cup last year & league runners up Olympia FC Warriors have been drawn an favourable opposition in Southern Championship outfit Beachside FC. One would imagine that should favour the Warriors playing on the artificial turf at Warrior Park.

Kingborough Lions hosting Clarence Zebras at the Den should also be an intriguing encounter.
