Vic Tuting MBE

Born in England, Vic Tuting settled in Hobart in 1920. After a modest playing career he became an active soccer official. In the early 1930s, Tuting helped Tasmania come under national control. He continued promoting consolidation of the sport in Tasmania for more than 50 years. Tuting had a strong vision for the code, and in 1974 was made senior vice president of the Australian Soccer Federation. He was made a life member of the ASF in 1964, one of the first two members to be honoured. Tuting was also elected honorary president of the Oceania Confederation in 1990. He managed many Australian touring teams, including a seven week tour in 1980. Tuting died in 1990.
