Riverside Olympic

Just an hour away from kick off at Windsor Park. Riverside get their debut NPL Tasmania season underway against ample opposition in the Glenorchy Knights, who make their first appearance in Tasmania’s top flight since 2015. The Knights have made some serious improvements both on and off the pitch since their last state league campaign, so it will be a very interesting campaign for them.

The winners of the Northern Championship vs the winners of the Southern Championship go head-to-head in their first games of the new NPL Tas season. Who will take the early advantage?
