Football Federation Tasmania CEP John Boulous expressed regret at a media conference that the Pelada kit sponsorship for the Victory League had come to an end.
But, Boulous said that other companies had already approached FFT about taking over the kit sponsorship for the 2014 and 2015 Victory League seasons.

Boulous said Pelada had provided kits for the current season but that would be the end of arrangement.
Boulous also said he was looking forward to teh first Victory League games being played on the new artificial KGV Park pitch tomorrow.
There will also be two games at KGV Park this evening with the Under-20 clash between Tilford Zebras and Kingborough Lions United at 6pm, followed by the Southern Premier League game between the NTC and Taroona at 8pm.
Tilford Zebras midfielder Jonathon Ladic said his team were looking forward to tomorrow’s Victory League clash with South Hobart.

Ladic said he and his team-mates hoped to bounce back from their disappointing performance in going down 5-2 to Devonport City on the opening day of the season last Saturday.
Missed chances in the first half had proved crucial in the outcome but he praised Devonport for their style of play and come-back to win the match.
Tilford Zebras will again face Devonport City on Monday in the quarterfinals of the Milan Lakoseljac Memorial Trophy competition.

Glenorchy Knights coach Chris Hey said he would rotate some squad members this weekend as the club had two difficult games.
Tomorrow, the Knights face Northern Rangers in the second round of the Victory League, while on Monday, they again confront South Hobart, this time in the Milan Lakoselajc Memorial Trophy quarterfinals.
Hey said the team had impressed in drawing 3-3 with South Hobart in the league last Sunday and he was hoping for another good performance against South Hobart on Monday.
Meanwhile, a new electronic scoreboard has been installed at KGV Park.
It also incorporates a stopwatch which counts down the minutes in each half.
