Cripps to kick goals in 2019

Look what the TSL has been cooking up in the off-season…

They produce Tasmania’s best fresh bread and now Cripps are giving the TSL match balls a fresh look.

AFL Tasmania is delighted to announce that Cripps will be the new ball sponsor of the Bupa Tasmanian State League (TSL) and Wrest Point TSLW for the next two years.


This partnership establishes Cripps as a major partner of the TSL and continues Cripps history as a strong supporter of Tasmanian footy. As the centre piece of the partnership, from this upcoming season the Cripps logo will be emblazoned on all game-day footballs for both the Bupa TSL and Wrest Point TSLW.

“We are thrilled to have Cripps on board as the official ball sponsor of both the Bupa TSL and Wrest Point TSLW competitions moving forward,” State Manager – Tasmanian State League Carl Saunder said.

“Cripps is a distinctly Tasmanian company with strong connections to local communities and a history of supporting football.

“With the footy season just around the corner, this announcement further enhances anticipation for the action to get underway,” Mr Saunder said.

Paul Gadomski, Cripps Chief Executive, says this partnership with the TSL is a great opportunity to support the game in the state.

“A partnership between Cripps and both the Men’s and Women’s Tasmanian State league competitions mixes together well; Cripps makes great products for Tasmanians to enjoy and the TSL and TSLW are great Tasmanian products showcasing elite Tasmanian male and female footballers,” Mr Gadomski said.

“Cripps has an ethos of giving back to the community and has for a long time supported junior footballers, football clubs, local leagues and umpire associations. Providing assistance to the states elite level male and female footballers is a logical progression.

“These men and women have fuelled their football careers on Cripps bread products and to be able to support the TSL competition in such an exciting time in Tasmanian football makes us very proud,” Mr Gadomski added.

“To all players in the TSL and TSLW, Crippitreal this season and may your football skills rise to the occasion in season 2019.”

“Cripps and TSL football…a toast to Tasmania”
