QLD v TAS returns in 2024

Senior Representative football will continue in 2024 with Queensland set to take on Tasmania on the Gold Coast on Saturday June 22.  

The day will see a double header of representative footy when the Queensland women look to take back-to-back victories, and the Queensland men battle for redemption after this year’s heartbreaker.  

The Queensland double header against Tasmania comes before Tasmania takes on a combined Sydney and Canberra team at home in July. 

Head of AFL Queensland Trisha Squires said she’s looking forward to the next instalment of the representative rivalry between Queensland and Tasmania.  

“The state representative games in 2023 were a resounding success and we are looking forward to building on this excitement and momentum in 2024,” she said. 

“Our teams are a mix of experience and rising stars, with this year’s games showcasing the exceptional talent we’ve developed through our pathways.  

“Having the opportunity to play at the iconic North Hobart Oval was an experience our players will never forget, but we are pleased to be able to host Tasmania in the Sunshine State in June next year, knowing it will be another tough contest.  

“The recent 2023 AFL and AFL Rookie Drafts were testament to the talent we have here in Queensland. Earlier this year, Southport Ruck Lilly Pearce was drafted to Richmond, and just recently, Bruce Reville was drafted to the Brisbane Lions. Both players featured in the 2023 Queensland state teams, so I look forward to watching our best senior footballers represent our state in the iconic maroon jumper next June.” 

Head of AFL Tasmania Damian Gill said Tasmania’s ‘map’ jersey is the best footy jumper in Australia and every time we get to see it on the field, it’s a special feeling – a privilege.” 

“We know how much our men’s and women’s players loved representing ‘the map’ this year in Tasmania’s Rep game against Queensland – an event which was a huge success. 

“It’s fantastic to be building off that success, and once again, be taking to the field against Queensland in what is becoming an exciting football rivalry. 

“The strength of Queensland and Tasmanian footy went to a new level in 2023 – as highlighted by both states’ success at the 2023 AFL Draft. 

“As the game continues to grow in both regions, AFL Tasmania looks forward to working with AFL Queensland to deliver yet another high-quality event.” 

The Queensland men’s and women’s squads will be announced in 2024.
