On Tuesday, FFA announced Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane would host the upcoming matches against Argentina, New Zealand and the Korea Republic in the inaugural Cup of Nations.

While Brisbane will see it's first Matildas match in over four years and the first at Suncorp Stadium, it will be the 13th year that Adelaide hasn't seen a game. 

The last time the Matildas played in South Australia was in the AFC Women's Asian Cup final against China PR in 2006. The match, which was played at Hindmarsh Stadium, saw 5,000 people attend.

This time round Football Federation Australia (FFA) had to consider the logistics of the matches for all teams involved.

"On this occasion, only three cities could host and logistics were a factor in moving the delegations from city to city," an FFA spokesperson said. 

"FFA remains in dialogue with many Governments and Councils regarding future matches and we hope that other cities and regions will be able to host games later in 2019 and/or in the windows to come."

Adelaide also missed out on hosting the two-game series against Chile last month. 

Events South Australia executive director Hitaf Rasheed told The Advertiser in June they didn't end up pursuing the opportunity.

“We are aware of the opportunity, but it is unlikely we will pursue it for this year,’’ Rasheed said.

“Having said that, we would love to see the Matildas in Adelaide sometime in the near future and wish them well on their road to France and the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.”

The South Australian Tourism Commission were contacted for comment.
