The Devonport Strikers have confirmed they are actively pursuing the possibility of fielding a Women's Super League side.
The premier women's competition in the state was a six team competition in 2019, with the Ulverstone representing the North-West Coast and was also the only team in the North of the state.
With the merger of Clarence United and Hobart Zebras, the league currently has five teams, with the desire for a Launceston-based team to return to take it back to six.
Strikers football operations manager Rod Andrews said the club believed it could support a WSL side after work it had put into the junior space.
"We are keen to enter this space because we are very confident now we have the facilities and the junior structure in terms of the junior youth girls and the youth girls to sustain a WSL team," he said.
"We have never had that in the past and we have definitely grown in the past year and a bit and are now in the position to do that.
"We have always told our younger players that they need to go to Ulverstone if they aspire to play at the top level."
Andrews said the major issue for the bid was that there only was one licence available for the North-West.
"We are still very keen to pursue a WSL team in the future, it is difficult to quantify when the future is where things stand at the moment.
"There is only one WSL licence available on the North-West Coast and Ulverstone have that licence, so that is where things stand at the moment and discussions are still ongoing."
