The AFL Women’s competition is set for “aggressive” expansion in 2019, according to League boss, Gillon McLachlan.
McLachlan told SEN radio on Saturday afternoon the AFLW competition could see more than two teams added to the league in two years time.
“I do think that (more than two teams could come be added in 2019),” McLachlan said.
However, it remains unlikely that any new teams will be added next season.
“We haven’t made a final decision but my view is out there that I think we need to consolidate next year and I think the quality of the game will increase remarkably,” he added.
“I think we’ll be then prepared to do something hopefully aggressive in 2019.”
The AFLW league was a raging success in season one, with fans turned away from the first game of the season at Ikon Park with the stadium at capacity prior to the start of the game.
