New Jumper 2020


At the end of 2019, the TUFC changed their long-time affiliation from the Tasmanian University Sports Council to The University of Tasmania itself. While on the surface this appears to be a minor change, there has been a lot of work in the background to ensure a smooth transition in ensuring a sustainable, long-term relationship. However, one visible difference that will be noticed by supporters as the players run out for the first time in season 2020, is a change to the TUFC playing jumper. The UTAS sporting colours are predominately red, black, and white, and so the yellow, which has been a significant part of the TUFC jersey for most of its proud history, has been replaced with the grey. This is an important step to align all University clubs to a similar colour scheme while representing UTAS, but also retains the stripes that have been synonymous with The TUFC in the old scholars for many years. The yellow may be gone but it is not forgotten, with a yellow ‘TUFC’ on the back of the jumper as a note to its place in our history.
