Launceston will not host matches in the 2023 Women's World Cup.
FIFA announced the nine successful host cities on Thursday morning, with five Australian cities - Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane - represented.
Wellington, Auckland, Hamilton and Dunedin were the successful New Zealand bidders with Launceston, Newcastle and Christchurch all missing out.
Football Tasmania chief executive Matt Bulkeley said the state body would now press to ensure the Apple Isle still benefits from the tournament.
"This morning the Premier made it clear that he wants to continue discussions with Football Tasmania about the best way to ensure our sport has the infrastructure it needs," Bulkeley said.
"We will work constructively with anyone who wants to see the world game continue to grow in Tasmania.

"We believe that the state can still benefit from the Women's World Cup in 2023 by hosting national teams to either train in Tasmania or make the state their base-camp.
"It's important we seize this opportunity given football is clearly the most popular team sport in Tasmania and we have the highest proportion of female football participation of anywhere in the country at 28 per cent."
Sydney (Stadium Australia and Sydney Football Stadium) was the only city to have two venues accepted and is also set to host the final, with the two semis to be split either side of the Tasman.
The tournament is set to feature a record 32 teams and is slated to begin in July 2023.
