Two sellout crowds at UTAS Stadium this season could be the turning point to boost the number of Big Bash fixtures in Launceston next summer.
Cricket Tasmania chief executive Dominic Baker will investigate that possibility to maximise "every commercial opportunity" under his new leadership since taking the reins from Nick Cummins.
"I think on the face of it, two [fixtures] seems the right number, but having been here for five minutes and not gone through a season myself, certainly the team and I will look at how that unfolds through the year," he said.
"We get great support from the Launceston city council to host those games there.
"The Launceston cricket public already support them pretty well and I am looking forward to getting up there myself this year, being on the ground when those games are played and having an assessment myself.
"I just think taking the game around the state is very important."
Cricket Tasmania's decision to move a Hurricanes' fixture to Launceston for the first time in 2017 was the biggest home and away attendance for the state's BBL side.
The near sold-out 16,734 ensured a further two games last season that attracted 12,455 and 13,836 - exceeding the attendance in Hobart for the Canes' semi-final loss (12,404) and the 10,417 Bellerive Oval season average.
But Cricket Tasmania's decision to move an extra game away from the state capital to Alice Springs was met with greater derision from fans.

"We have had some feedback that, yes, is not entirely positive, but I would put that down in the context that the first game of the cricket season every year is our poorest attendance," Baker said.
"So in reality people aren't coming to that game so we want to ensure we are using every opportunity we've got.
"That was a really good window for us to take a game outside of Tasmania and let's face it, we have to be more innovative than any other state to be competitive so we are going to keep pursuing opportunities like that."
Cricket Tasmania is set to enter its second match into a three-year contract to play in Alice Springs that extends to preseason matches and a training camp in Darwin including an option through until the 2022-23 season.
"It was a very sensible deal on a lot of fronts," Baker said.
"Obviously, commercially it's been sensible as we are a small state, so we have to make sure we capitalise on every commercial opportunity that comes along."
Baker said he will continue the push for more international cricket in Tasmania.
Bellerive Oval has been reduced to just single one-day or T20 international fixtures annually after the ACT government stepped in and secured a deal to host a Test match involving Sri Lanka in January in place of Hobart.
"We do understand that we are at the whim of the schedule that is put out internationally anyway," Baker said, "but that won't stop us to get our fair share of international cricket."
