Canberra, Darwin and other places have been mentioned, but Townsville seem to be the most pro-active. The 2nd Victorian team have pretty big backing from Soccer Victoria and Wollongong through to old Wolves club, as well as the local league there. I don't think there will be an expansion until they sort of what to do with back up players and youth players in the current clubs. Also all 8 current clubs have to be stable themsleves, which could take another couple seasons.
