Lessons learned from Tasmania's two previous involvements in world cups jointly staged by Australia and New Zealand have the state well placed should it complete a hat-trick with the women's soccer equivalent.
In 2003 and 2015 Tassie was offered a slice of rugby and cricket cakes.
Fair to say it devoured the former but nibbled the latter with a screwed up face that suggested the chocolate icing wasn't quite up to scratch.
It should be licking its lips about the possibility of another in 2023.
It is almost impossible to examine the contrast between those two previous episodes without appearing parochial.

On a freezing October night in 2003, a state as interested in rugby union as Greenland is in air conditioning packed 15,457 supporters into Launceston's York Park for the unglamorous fixture between Namibia and Romania to decide which of the minnows would finish bottom of their pool having both lost every other game.
Twelve years later the argument that Bellerive Oval needed a $15 million investment to become 20,000 capacity in order to secure Cricket World Cup matches looked somewhat hollow when that figure wasn't even reached by adding all three match attendances together.
After expectedly low crowds of 4048 and 3549 were recorded at the first two fixtures involving Ireland, Zimbabwe, Scotland and Sri Lanka, organisers asked to be judged on the size of the third, featuring, as it did, the host nation on a non-school or work day.
The game drew 12,177. For an Australian game. In our national summer sport. In a tournament Australia would go on to win.
So 3280 people were more interested in watching Windhoek's finest than cheering on James Faulkner on his way to becoming the third Tasmanian to be named player of the match in a World Cup final.
If only based on this evidence, the decision to choose the same Launceston venue as the host of potential women's soccer World Cup fixtures appears the logical one.
But the ground also has previous form in the same sport.
When Melbourne Victory decided to start taking A-League pre-season fixtures to Tasmania, they began by playing them at the ground formerly known as York Park, regularly attracting 6000-plus crowds between 2006 and 2013, peaking at 8061 in 2007. This is more than 1500 above the average attendance of this year's league leaders, Victory's cross-town neighbours City.
In early December, Premier Will Hodgman announced that Tasmania could host three group stage matches if Australia was successful in a bid to host the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup.
He said those games would be played at York Park (now UTAS Stadium) and, as would be expected of a politician on top of their game, spruiked the economic benefits of Launceston enjoying a return to the world sporting stage.
Following the announcement, The Examiner's Adam Holmes reported that UTAS would require substantial temporary seating to become a rectangular arena as only once before in recent World Cup history had a non-rectangular venue hosted games.
And Adam supports Liverpool so knows his onions.
With the 2015 women's tournament watched by an estimated worldwide audience of 750 million viewers, Football Tasmania chief executive Matt Bulkeley also talked up the long-term value to a state which already had one of the highest levels of female soccer participation in the country.
"What a great thing it would be to have young Tasmanians see some of the best football players in the world run around Tasmania's ovals and inspire the next generation of football players," he said.
It would indeed be difficult to put a value on the motivational impact of seeing Sam Kerr, Megan Rapinoe, Marta and co. doing their thing.
But it would be hoped that performance at York Park could only increase participation further down Forster Street at Churchill Park.
