Discussions are under way to bring the Matildas to Launceston ahead of the 2023 Women's World Cup.
In what looms as an unprecedented period for international soccer in Tasmania, the state could host as many as four matches in the next three years.
Launceston is one of seven Australian cities and 12 across the trans-Tasman bidding to be a host city for the 2023 tournament, which will feature a record 32 nations.

Football Tasmania chief executive Matt Bulkeley, who joined members of the Launceston bid in making a virtual presentation to FIFA representatives on Tuesday night, said he wanted to bring the Matildas to UTAS Stadium in the lead-up to the World Cup.
"We think we can make [a Matildas game in Launceston] happen," he said.
"We've had a number of discussions with Football Federation Australia about that.
"I think the Matildas are our most popular national team now, so we'd love to have them down here and we think we could really be great hosts for them and that itself would be a massive thing for football in Tasmania."
Football Tasmania has a number of balls in play with A-League and W-League teams also on the agenda.
The state had a bid to join the A-League rejected in 2018, but Bulkeley has said in the past that Tasmania is front of the queue when the next round of expansion rolls around.
Upgrades that would see UTAS Stadium be able to function as a rectangular venue are believed to be crucial in the state's bid to secure World Cup matches and national men's and women's teams.
"We're still working very hard on our ambition of having a W-League and an A-League team out of Tasmania," Bulkeley said.
"We're working closely with a number of stakeholders including the government and people that actually want to invest in that club.
"If we were fortunate to have improvements and upgrades to the stadium that would absolutely speed that process up and it would make it a much more appealing venue as well."
Of the 12 cities bidding for a block of World Cup fixtures, Launceston is one of only two without a rectangular stadium.
Small Business, Hospitality and Events Minister Sarah Courtney said the government was looking into upgrade options to give UTAS Stadium's bid the best chance of success.
"State Growth is working collaboratively with a range of stakeholders including Launceston City Council on what the best options are for the stadium," Courtney said.
"We have seen flexibility with the stadium in the past and it's also important that we have a stadium that's able to host events into the future so there's a lot of work being done at the moment on the best option."
