The Mercury has reported a Tasmanian bid spokeswoman Victoria Morton said a women’s team would be on the agenda.

“That would be our next step — W-League, youth league, academy, everything that goes with having an A-League club,” Morton told The Mercury. 

“We would be supporting all levels of football,” she said.

It's been established a W-League and Youth team are not part of the required criteria for A-League expansion but clubs can include them in their EOI if they would like. 

Independent Federal MP Andrew Wilkie and Harry Stamoulis, who heads the consortium behind the bid, have also recently discussed the chance of a W-League side in the state.

“Interesting dimension of my recent discussions with Mr Stamoulis was my suggestion that his A-League submission would be even stronger if it included a commitment to a W-League team,” Wilkie said. 

This announcement brings the total of teams willing to support a W-League side 13 out of 15 proposals.
