Football Federation Australia (FFA) expects interest in the A-League to bounce after the Socceroos' participation in the World Cup, along with participation at junior levels.
Millions of Australians have tuned in to the Socceroos' exploits in Russia, as Mile Jedinak attempts to lead the team into the knockout phase for the first time since 2006.
A do-or-die group stage finale with Peru on Tuesday (Wednesday 12am AEST) will decide their fate in the tournament.
It's been the best month for the sport since the 2015 Asian Cup, hosted and won on home soil.
FFA chief David Gallop is eager for that momentum to roll onto the domestic league.
The A-League endured a downturn in interest during the 2017/18 campaign, with fewer eyeballs watching the competition and a slump in fans through the turnstiles.
The competition has provided two of Australia's star players - Daniel Arzani and Josh Risdon - with every member of Bert van Marwijk's starting XI having once called the league home.
Despite that, Mat Leckie, one of the best-performing Socceroos in Russia, issued a gloomy forecast on the sport's future, saying he "can't see a huge amount changing in terms of people getting on board with the A-League".
"I am sure people will be inspired to go and watch people like Josh and Daniel in the A-League," he told AAP.
"With the prospect of two new clubs joining in the season after next, I think football has a lot of momentum coming out of this World Cup."
Football has traditionally enjoyed spikes in grassroots participation following the World Cup every four years.
Gallop said he hoped it would lead to another edition of the global tournament heading to Australia.
"We expect to see an increase in participation," Gallop continued.
"We've been delighted with the support the Socceroos have received at home from millions of fans and the massive media coverage will help to attract new fans who are stoked to see our guys competing with the best in the world.
"The global coverage also lifts our thoughts to the chance to host the Women's World Cup in 2023. That could be sensational for football and Australia."
The Socceroos' campaign will end in Russia unless they beat Peru and France defeat Denmark with a goal difference swing of three.
Gallop admitted the odds were against Australia continuing their run but said anything was possible should those events conspire.
"Everyone can see how tough this tournament is but we are playing well and confidence is high within the team," he said.
"Should we get there anything can happen. The prospect is very exciting for everyone."
