The FFA has confirmed that Chile has been approached for a friendly match later this year.
Chile, who are ranked no.40 in the world, are headed to their first World Cup next year after beating Argentina 4-0 to qualify for France.
There are a number of possible venue options for the match but Adelaide looks to be a possible choice.
The Advertiser has reported the Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment David Ridgeway claimed the state government is set to boost the Events Bid Fund to $40 million over four years with Events SA communicating with FFA.
“I understand that Events SA are in regular communication with the FFA and always looking at opportunities to secure more football content, whether it’s the Socceroos or Matildas,’’ he told The Advertiser.
“If an opportunity presents itself to host the Matildas in the near future at either Adelaide Oval or Hindmarsh Stadium we would assess it then,” Ridgeway said.
If the deal does go through it will be the first time in 12 years that the Matildas play in Adelaide.
The last time was in 2006 at Hindmarsh Stadium when they reached the final of AFC Women’s Asian Cup in front of 5000 fans.
Ultimately, the Matildas were runners-up to China, who won their eighth title in a penalty shootout.
