History

The Huonville Lions Football Club was formed as a result of a merger between former Huon Football Association clubs Huonville Bulldogs (1887–1997) and the Franklin Lions (1887–1997) at the end of the 1997 season after the Huon Football Association's demise. The Lions then joined the Southern Football League in 1998.
