A 108-year-old railway goods shed runs through the centre square of a proposed AFL stadium in Hobart.

And now — the ABC understands — the circa-1915 shed has received provisional heritage listing by the Tasmanian Heritage Council.

It presents a new hurdle for the Tasmanian government in its push for a 23,000-seat roofed stadium on Macquarie Point — a condition from the AFL for the state to be granted entry to the national competition.
