Football Tas today announced the Milan Lakoseljac Cup qualifiers to be played on the weekend of March 8th.

City's inclusion is their first since 2017 while Riverside will have their first crack. NPL TAS Champions Devonport Strikers will not be in the comp. Perhaps their mind games ahead of the season.
